NEW YORK -- Our sister station WABC-TV has shared day-of-air coverage from Sept. 11, 2001, showing moments after the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center to the mass exodus from New York City.

The stories appear as they aired on New York's Channel 7 22 years ago. As per an editorial decision, you will not see any footage that has been deemed too sensitive to view.

However, to capture the severity of the attack, as well as to reflect the outstanding and emotional work many of our reporters turned out that day, a few of the videos do contain footage of the Twin Towers falling.

Please view the videos at your own discretion, and remember the struggle of all those who died that day and who continue to suffer today.
