The official New York Police
Department Incident Number was 0727. If you take the time to read the
transcript of Incident 0727 then it is very likely that you will be very
shocked by what you read as the scene unfolded at the WTC and other places
associated with that day of terror.
It is not my intention to glamorize these events or to gain
in some way from this site, however, I feel that the true story of 9-11-2001
should be available to the world as a permanent record of just how heinous
terrorism really is.
This page includes what I can locate as the log of Incident 0727. I do not
have all of the log file, but as you will see it is grim reading.
Excerpts of the 911 Log on Sept. 11
Reveal Unfolding Terror
The Associated Press Published: Oct 1, 2001
NEW YORK (AP) - The 911 entries started
at 8:47 a.m. with the words "BLDG EXPLOSION." Incident No. 0727 quickly
unfolded as a diary of terror, as call after desperate call rolled in from the
World Trade Center. Excerpts from the log of the dispatcher for the Fire
Department's Emergency Management Service were published Sunday in the Daily
The entries were published much as they
appeared when they flashed on the computer screen Sept. 11. The time of each
call is noted, and messages are abbreviated. MC stands for male caller, FC for
female caller, STS for "states."
MC STS PLANE JUST FLEW INTO WORL TRADE CENTER--POSS COMMERCIAL AIRPLANE.
Then the calls began pouring in from One
World Trade Center.
MC STS HE IS ON THE 87 FLR-STS 4 PERSON THERE W HIM-STS THERE IS FIRE.

Suddenly all calls from that building

MC STS HE CAN BARELY BREATHE...105TH FLR
The calls ended at 10:33 a.m. as abruptly
as they had begun, with a horrifying final note: "ENTIRE TOWER DOWN."
Clearly this is a far from complete log
of the events that unfolded on the 11th September and it is very likely that
most of the transcript has been edited because of the nature of the content of
It is unlikely that I will update this
log - it serves as a grim reminder that many innocent people with families or
dependents lost their lives at this time and once again shows exactly
what terrorism stands for. The murderers involved in this tragedy have got to
be bought to justice for these terrible events.
