Richard Jones
Akron Children's Hospital, Akron, United States of America

Clinical interest: General medicine

“At 8.45am a Los Angeles bound American Airline 747 from Boston, USA crashed into the upper half of the north tower of the World Trade Centre with a terrific explosion. Workers arriving into downtown lower Manhattan could only stare in disbelief. Within 18 minutes, United Flight 175 crashed into the south tower sending a fireball and debris down to the crowded streets below. Panic took hold, and the city’s emergency services flooded into the area from all over the island. As part of my elective, I was working at the City of New York Office of Chief Medical Examiner at East 30th Street, 1st Avenue, at the time of the crashes – just 11/2 miles away.”
