The morning of 11th of September 2001 shook not just America, but the whole world. The terrorists attack on the World Trade Center in New York has incredible stories of people who witnessed the most petrifying day of their lives and have been affected by it deeply.

But there is one woman whose story stands out. She has had an experience like no else had. She has seen a side of the 9/11 attack that no one else had seen.

She has told her story several times at several public speaking events, but there’s always something about it that catches extra attention.


After almost 2,606 people died on the black day that the 11th of September 2001 turned out to be, nobody has ever been able to forget it. When the whole of New York had just started a new morning, all the citizens were numb when the terrorists attacked the center of the city.


Of the thousands of people who were in the Twin Towers on that unfortunate day of September, only a few were lucky enough to escape the hands of death. But what they saw that day still haunts them, and forever will. One such person is Tania Head. 

Ms. Head

Alicia Esteve Head, famously known as Tania Head was born on July 31, 1973. She survived the 9/11 attack, but her story stands out from all other survivors of the day. She has some details in her story that no other person has. 

Morning of 11th

Tania was working in the south tower of the world trade center on the day of the attack. She had been at the center to help in the negotiation of a deal which was a part of her job at Merrill Lynch, an investment firm. 


At 8:46 am, a hijacked American Airlines plane 175 crashed into the upper floor of the North Tower, the worst tragedy for the city. All the people present in the tower started to run downwards to evacuate the place but there was a lot more to come.

Another Crash

At around 9:00 am, when everyone in the towers was running for their lives, a second plane crashed into the building between its 77th and 85th floors. The aircrafts had been transformed into deadly weapons by the terrorists.
