Was this some kind of prank or something?
It was a pretty stupid prank if it was...
They can trace the call, can they not?
Strange that this story is different and "hidden away" at the cnn page.I had to search for it.In news media all over the world it is reported that there was a fire starting at a veldor apparatus in the new world trade center. The really strange thing is anyway that the tower didn`t didnt fall down in free fall speed and get pulverized as the two twin towers and building 7.....
These accidents can happen during construction. Good news that it turned out a prank or whatever.
Controlled demolition charges not just a spark for that scenario. Implosion.
Good morning all
