Newly enhanced video of 9/11 gives a chilling glimpse of the horror during the aftermath
An enhanced version of the aftermath of the September 11 Terrorist Attacks in The World Trade Center that killed several people was released online.
The person who took the time to clean up visuals and audio was Mark LaGanga, and he shared it a couple of days before the 17th anniversary of the horrendous attack. It is impressive how much everything changed after LaGanga’s enhancement.
During the almost-half-an-hour-long video, the man showed several people from the emergency services trying to work in the middle of a storm of dust and debris minutes after the Twin Towers collapsed.
Multiple survivors were also portrayed while being guided and taken away from the area into several ambulances that were parked a couple of feet away waiting for them.
Apart from that, other pieces of footage showed injured people being wheeled away on beds and wheelchairs. At some point during the video, a rescuer from the Secret Service told LaGanga to get out of the wreckage as he heard that the top of the building fell.

THE NUMBER OF VICTIMS
The video kept showing all the disaster that the terrorist attack left behind, wherein almost 3,000 people were killed, and more than 6,000 others were injured. From those 3,000 victims, at least 2,600 were people who were in the World Trade Center or near it.
INVESTIGATORS ARE STILL IDENTIFYING THE VICTIMS
Even though it has been almost two decades since such horrible crime took place, investigators keep identifying people who died during the attack. As Lad Bible reported, Scott Michael Johnson was one of them.
He was 26 years old when the incident took place, and he worked as a securities analyst for investment bank Keefe Bruyette and Woods. Investigators managed to identify him thanks to a piece of his jawbone.
Experts say that Johnson was only the 1,642nd person to be formally identified as killed during the attack, which means that there are still around 1,100 people that have not been recognized.
A BALD EAGLE AT A 9/11 MEMORIAL
The video of an eagle landing on a raised ladder at a 9/11 memorial in the middle of Interstate 10 by the Andover Minnesota Fire Department went viral in no time.
Not only because seeing a bald eagle on top of a ladder is quite uncommon, but also because that specific animal is the US National Emblem.
