9/11 The Falling Man

While surfing through Youtube, I came across video clips of the September 11th 2001 attacks on the Twin Towers in New York. And then i saw the documentary titled '9/11 The falling man'. Perhaps this is the most powerful documentary i have seen yet. Even after watching it, I sat in my chair in the Abacus Lab, stunned, numb, unable to imagine this. I watched all 8 clips of the documentary. The Falling Man" is a name given to a man who fell from one of the twin towers during the attacks.

The photo was taken by a phtogrpaher names Richard Drew at around 9:41:15 a.m. on September 11, 2001, just before the towers collapsed. The documenatary tries to identify the person in the hope of telling his story and to remember the over 200 people who fell to their deaths from the burning towers.
