meeting down in thepresident's emergency operations center. when it came time for the end of the day, the president went off to the white house mansion. to go to bed. i went back to my office in the west wing and all of a sudden two secret service agents came in, and literally lifted me out of my chair, and started running down the corridors of thewhite house to take me down to a bunker. an that was because there was a report t tha the plane had entered t airspace near washington, and so i'm down in th bunker, and down comes the president. carrying the dog, and then the first lady comes down carrying the cat. it was a long day. the terrorists were there. >> and i remember it was probably around 8:00 p.m. tha night. i had heard someone yell out, united states marine corps, anybody here? and d god gifted me with a big mouth and big lungs and even though i was tired i started yelling, pape.

pressure, and the bones in my knees and hips were just -- really squeezed between two pieces of concrete. >> dominick was bleeding out of his mouth and said, will, don't ever forget died trying to save you ys. he took his firearm lifted it into the a in a last-ditch effort to ay,ent down here. and that's when he passed. >> the search and reue effort officially h not yet getten underway now there as you mentioned bring down the heavy equipment to lower manhattan to begin moving the heavy rubble, the debrisnder which thousands and thousands of people are buried. some alive, some perhaps not many perhaps not, we are told. >> it took three painful hours to get me out. talkg about cutting my leg off. i told them, if you had to, just do it. i could hear them worng and at that point i knew we good.
we were going to get out of here. >> came out 11:00 p.m. buried 12, 13 hours. >> that was the one side e the building that had been retrofitted, and there were less people on that side, because constructi had literally just stopped. and people were moving bk in. had it hit another side that wa would have been considerably higher. when the plane hit the building, it immediately disintegrated as it went through the building's don't think there was a plane piece bigger than a couple feet, if that, short of the engine and the landing gear.
