Memories of 9/11, Ten Years Later

Kid Reporter interviews New Yorker Emily Sussell about her experience on September 11, 2001

By Grace McManus | September 8 , 2011

On September 11, 2001, Emily Sussell was an 11-year-old New Yorker. It was her fourth day of 6th grade at Intermediate School 89, just four blocks away from the World Trade Center. Everyone thought it was just another normal day — until a loud crash shook the school building.

At first, Emily thought the shaking was because of a car accident — her school was right on a highway. But that wasn't the case. Instead, a plane had flown into one of the Twin Towers. Emily was scared and confused. No one knew what to do. What was going on?

Click play below to watch the interview and hear how this tragic day changed Emily's life forever.
