One after the other......This truly would've been the last thing on their mind that morning. Unreal. They must have had the feeling of absolutely no hope. Very sad.
USA TODAY estimates that at least 200 people jumped to their deaths that
morning, far more than can be seen in the photographs taken that
morning. Nearly all were from the north tower, which was hit first and
collapsed last. Fewer than a dozen were from the south tower.
The jumping started shortly after the first jet hit at 8:46 a.m. People
jumped continuously during the 102 minutes that the north tower stood.
Two people jumped as the north tower began to fall at 10:28 a.m.,
For those who jumped, the fall lasted 10 seconds.
They struck the ground at just less than 150 miles per hour — not fast
enough to cause unconsciousness while falling, but fast enough to ensure
instant death on impact. Peo
