New York: unpublished photo of 9/11 terrorism act accidentally found at flea market
The photos had been kept on a CD.
More than 2.5 thousand of photos of the 9/11 terrorism act have been found on a CD bought at a flea market in New York. The photos that had not earlier been published have now been uploaded on Flickr.com.
Employees of the American archive assume the photos could have been taken by a worker who moved the piles. The photos show the mangled insides of the building, wreckage from the outside, general picture of the destruction, as well as working process of people and equipment.
The tragedy took place on September 11, 2001, when a passenger jet of American Airlines with 92 persons on board was captured by terrorists and hit the Northern tower of the World Trade Center in New York.
In a few minutes, another liner - of United Airlines - captured by terrorists hit the Southern tower. There were 65 persons on board.
Fire started. In a few minutes, the towers collapsed. 2752 persons died in the tragedy - taking into consideration those who helped put out the fire.
