Looking downward through the wracks of steel beams you realize they are sitting upon a sea of emergency vehicles.

And one of them went through I don't know how much ground, steel, concrete, etc. to penetrate the 1 & 9 Line just shortly after the subway I was riding to get the hell out of Dodge pulled out of the WTC station that day. We could hear the building coming down above us, although we did not realize it at the time, thinking it was another plane or some other sort of explosion occuring above us.

"Looking downward through the wracks of steel beams you realize they are sitting upon a sea of emergency vehicles."
One scene from that day is with me, though I only saw it once. Taken after the collapse of the first tower but before the second, it showed - in seemingly black-and-white because everything was covered in dust and ash - a row of ambulances, equipment and people gone into the first tower. Ghost carriages waiting for their ghostly occupants to return with the ghosts of those they hoped to help...
