Powerful Photos That Will Change The Way You See The World.

The Emotional Terror Of 9/11 Summed Up In One Picture


Richard Drew, Associated Press member, took this photograph known as The Falling Man. This photograph is emotional for many, as it shows just a part of the horrors that occurred at the World Trade Center during the 9/11 attacks.

The identity of the man in the photo is unknown, as is the reason he fell from the building. Whether he fell or jumped, the world will never know. An estimated 200 people died from falling or jumping from the building, some experts say. Though it looks like the man is jumping straight down, a series of photographs taken throughout the fall show him tumbling through the air.
