9/11 Attack Survivor on ESCAPING the WORLD TRADE CENTER | Giovanni Renteria

On the morning of September 11, 2001 Morgan Stanley employee Giovanni Renteria was attending a training seminar on the 64th floor in the South Tower of the World Trade Center. During a short break, Renteria headed to the ground floor and as he was exiting the building noticed a large amount of debris falling from the North Tower. The remnants of American Airlines Flight 11. Rushing back inside the building, Renteria and his fellow co-workers stood in the lobby of the South Tower trying to game plan what to do next. It was then that the South Tower was hit by United Airlines Flight 175 and September 11, 2001 turned into a harrowing day of survival for Giovanni Renteria.
