As you can see in the Video, the footage captures an incident of people falling/jumping from the World Trade Center in order to save themselves from fire or due to some reasons unknown is very disturbing and can only describe the apathy one would have faced during the horrifying terror strike.

There was a lot of fear and sadness around the world after the incident. Reportedly 2,996 (2,977 victims + 19 hijackers) deaths were recorded and 6000+ non fatal injuries.
Within an hour and 42 minutes, both 110-story towers collapsed, with debris and the resulting fires causing partial or complete collapse of all other buildings in the World Trade Center complex, including the 47-story 7 World Trade Center tower, as well as significant damage to ten other large surrounding structures.
A third plane, American Airlines Flight 77, was crashed into the Pentagon (the headquarters of the United States Department of Defense) in Arlington County, Virginia, leading to a partial collapse in the Pentagon’s western side. The fourth plane, United Airlines Flight 93, initially was steered toward Washington, D.C., but crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, after its passengers tried to overcome the hijackers.
at least $10 billion in property and infrastructure damage and $3 trillion in total costs. It was the deadliest incident for firefighters and law enforcement officers in the history of the United States, with 343 and 72 killed respectively.
