The World Trade Center Towers Was ATTACKED!!!!!!
Tuesday, Sep. 11th 2001 at 8:45am
New York City, NY, United States
New York, NY
September 11, 2001 was a bad day for the United States, terrorists hijacked planes with passengers on them and rammed into the twin towers. This was a suicide mission, so anyone on the plane was going to die unless they jumped out with parachutes. Many people died that day, nobody knew when the terrorists were going to attack, so it was unexpected. The fires that started on the buildings were suffocating people, some people jumped out of the buildings because of the fires, 2993 were killed and 8900 were injured. After the twin towers were attacked, we found out the pentagon was also attacked but not a lot of people died in that because the plane was off coarse a little. This was the WORST terrorist attack EVER.
In 1995, April 19, was the second worst terrorist attack, this attack killed 168, children included, and 680 injured. This attack was one of the deadliest attacks on American soil until the events of 9/11. This attack was supposed to hit the Alfred P. Murrah Federal building in Oklahoma City, the bomb was in a truck so it was a suicide job as well as 9/11. The attack time was at 9:02 am, the explosion was large and took out most of the building. The blast was sent off by anti-government militant Timothy McVeigh and was executed. His co-conspirator Terry Nichols was sent to life in prison.
