Episode Summary

World's Greatest Mysteries September Eleventh: Mayhem Or Miracles?
Controversy. Conspiracy. Confusion. History is fraught with events -- from local to global -- that have never been satisfactorily explained. What caused the dinosaurs to perish? How were the Egyptian Pyramids built? What happened to the great Inca civilization? Was John Wilkes Booth part of a large, sinister plot? Was George Armstrong Custer sacrificed to save the Grant Administration? Is there anything happening in Roswell, New Mexico, that should be shared with American citizens? Who shot John F. Kennedy? These and dozens of other international mysteries are investigated, explored, unraveled and reported. September Eleventh: Mayhem Or Miracles? The September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States (often referred to as --9-11?) were a series of coordinated suicide assaults by terrorists who hijacked four commercial passenger jet airliners. The hijackers intentionally crashed two of the jumbo jets into the World Trade Center in New York City, resulting in the collapse of both buildings within hours, as well as extensive damage to nearby buildings. The hijackers crashed a third airliner into the Pentagon, the mammoth U.S. military headquarters building in Washington, D.C. The fourth plane crashed into a field near Shanksville in rural Somerset County, Pennsylvania after passengers and members of the flight crew attempted to retake control of their plane. About 3,000 people, mostly office workers, police officers, and firefighters died that day. An additional approximately 7,000 people were injured. This insightful television program examines the modern-day heroes who emerged and the miracles occurred amidst the horror and chaos of 9-11. The program recounts some of the true-life experiences of those who were there and survived when everyone around them perished. Watch as heroic rescues are recounted and miraculous moments that demonstrate the character, selflessness and will to survive of everyday men and women in some of the most adverse conditions possible.moreless
