Twenty years ago, the terrorist attacks rocked the planet, as people from all around the world watched the passenger planes crashing into the World Trade Center towers. And for New Yorkers, especially the first responders, it became a gateway to hell, as they were forced to go face billowing flames and thick dust to rescue survivors.
Around 3,000 people were killed and 25,000 more injured in this attack. The city was devastated with large areas covered by concrete debris and dust from the collapsed buildings. Horrific images from that day depict the aftermath of the tragedy, as medics tried to help the wounded, and the firefighters did all they could to stop the blaze from bringing even more destruction.
