It's been over two decades since the devastating attacks on the World Trade Center, which resulted in the loss of almost 3,000 lives and left an indelible impact on countless others.
Over the years, numerous videos and images have captured the horror of that fateful day. However, a previously unreleased video has recently come to light, offering a new perspective on the tragedy.
The video, uploaded to YouTube in February 2022, was filmed by Kevin Westley and shows the shocking moment when United Airlines Flight 175 crashed into the South Tower.
This occurred less than 20 minutes after American Airlines Flight 11 had struck the North Tower. Westley, who was standing by the water's edge with a group of people, captured the crowd's audible gasps and screams as the plane hit the tower and a massive fireball erupted.
Since its upload, the video has garnered millions of views and elicited strong emotional responses from viewers.
Some questioned why it took over 20 years for such high-quality footage to be released.
In response, Westley explained that he had actually uploaded the video in the 2000s but had inadvertently left it private until now.
