WARNING 9/11 Footage Released From NYPD Helicopter

It was a terrifying day and I remember I called both of my parents and told them how much I loved them. It really rocked my world and it still does.

Then after the first tower fell, they got footage from above the toxic dust filling the streets of Lower Manhattan.
