http://www.NewsAndOpinion.com | Have you seen this man?
I would like your help in identifying and locating the short-haired young man whose face the Associated Press beamed worldwide last September 11 (see nearby photo). In an award-winning picture, AP photographer Suzanne Plunkett captured this gentleman running like hell as Tower Two of the World Trade Center collapsed. Clad in a white shirt and dark tie with his backpack's straps over his shoulders, he races east on Lower Manhattan's Fulton Street with a look of sheer horror on his face as a menacing, white debris cloud erupts up Church Street, one block to the west.
I have wondered since I saw that world-famous image who this guy is, where he was that awful day, what he saw and how he has recovered from that trauma (if he has). Unfortunately, Ms. Plunkett knows neither his name nor whereabouts, nor has either of us ever seen him interviewed.
If you have any information on this man, would you please pass it along? You may e-mail me by clicking here.. Feel free to share my request with anyone else who might be able to help by sending this URL: http://jewishworldreview.com/0902/murdock_mystery_man.asp
Many thanks, Dear Reader, for your assistance. I will report back whatever I
happen to learn from this eyewitness to the horror of 9-11.
