Footprint of South Tower

Access Bridge

RICH GARLOCK: The footprint of the South Tower was one of the last areas where debris was removed because the main ramp was built on top of it. The fire department wanted so badly to get into this area because that's where they had the South Tower command station (on Sept. 11) and they anticipated they would find a lot of people buried there.
