After a hijacked American Airlines Flight 11 hit the north wing of the Twin Towers in the first of three coordinated terrorist strikes that fateful day, many victims who couldn’t find any way out leaped out of the buildings to avoid being burned alive.
Following a tip from a CNN cameraman, a photographer named Richard Drew was on the area, now known as Ground Zero, and accidentally recorded the photographs of the 9/11 jumpers.
The photographer caught some of history’s most terrifying photos, including the ‘Falling Man’ and ‘Falling Woman.’ Karen Juday was the ‘Falling Woman.’
Juday was a 52-year-old administrative assistant at the brokerage firm Cantor Fitzgerald. She was from New Bremen, New York City.
