. It is such a pretty morning, isnt it. Although its not fall yet Music, now some very very sketchy details reaching us here at sky center, important enough to bring to you, though, at this early stage, we believe that a plane has crashed into the world trade center in new york. Right now were getting information out that it was a small commuter plane and, of course well let people know as soon as we have more information as to what actually caused this and, of course, on everybodys, mind who was Music. What weve just seen is is about the most shocking videotape ive ever seen. What are the odds of two separate planes? It is completely impossible to understand why this is happening and to figure out what in the world is going on. We heard a big bang and then we saw a small coming out and everybody started running out and we saw the plane on the other side of the building and there was smoke everywhere. People are jumping out the windows over there jumping out the windows. I guess because theyre trying to save themselves, i dont know blew up a big explosion. People started running, it was just chaos everywhere, people jumping out people just kept, jumping and jumping and jumping Music, and now you you have to move from talk about a possible accident to talk about something. Deliberate lets go to president bush right now. Two airplanes have crashed into the world trade center in an apparent terrorist attack on our country.
I have spoken to the vice president to the governor of new york to the director of the fbi and have ordered that the full resources of the federal government go to help the victims and their families and to conduct a full scale. Investigation to hunt down and to find those folks who committed this act, terrorism against our nation will not stand. And now, if you join me in a moment of silence, Music is Music. Music weve forgotten somewhat to remind people that there was the crash of another plane. A fourth plane outside pittsburgh about 80 miles from pittsburgh, and we dont have video of that story at the moment. Thats the fourth prong in this terrorist attack on u.s soil. We want to just repeat those airline numbers, which is you know, extremely upsetting news for people who have loved ones on these flights, but we want to give you that information, the four aircraft involved Music. We described to you the possibility of that north tower collapsing about five minutes. After we went off the air, it did collapse. Once again. We have no idea at this point, the loss of life. I can only tell you there were hundreds of emergency workers down there about five or six blocks. In the first few minutes, emergency workers were trying just basically to get out of there to survive. You could see that written in their faces. The situation was so desperate. They just wanted to get out of there today, our fellow citizens, our way of life, our very freedom came under attack in a series of deliberate and deadly terrorist acts.
The victims were in airplanes or in their offices, secretaries, businessmen and women, military and federal workers, moms and dads friends and neighbors. Thousands of lives were suddenly ended by evil, despicable acts of terror. The pictures of airplanes flying into buildings, fires, burning, huge huge structures collapsing, have filled us with disbelief, terrible sadness and a quiet, unyielding anger. A great people has been moved to defend a great nation.
