The Falling Man

[Picture: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Falling_Man]

9:41:15 A.M. September 11, 2001: In the middle of chaos over New York City, American photographer Richard Drew captured one disturbing shot of a man falling from the upper floors of the burning World Trade Center. The unidentified subject of the image was one of the desperate "jumpers" who apparently intended their deaths to the gravity rather than from searing burns and suffocation.

The title story by Tom Junod was published in the September 2003 issue of Esquire Magazine.

Oh, Lord?!
