Everyone wanted to help somehow but no one knew how. They just looked on in disbelief as people kept jumping out of the building when something else came into view.

“We then saw the second plane coming in,” said Santiago. “The plane went around the buildings, went over to Staten Island, and you could see it go by the Statue of Liberty and then it came back to the South Tower. That’s when we realized it was an attack. I recall seeing how the plane came into the building window by window, the exploding debris.”

Santiago survived the terrorist attacks September 11, 2011. When the South tower collapsed Santiago was trapped under a trailer with five other people for hours before being rescued by firemen.
