The Collapse of World Trade Center 7

(Tuesday, September 11, 2001, 5:20:33 p.m. EDT)7 World Trade Center, also known as the Salomon Bros. Building, a 47-story building that had sustained damage from falling debris and widespread fires, collapsed this afternoon.

Due to the emergency personnel having more than enough time to evacuate the building since the 10:28 a.m. collapse of the World Trade Center North Tower, there were no injuries or deaths.

The collapses were all the result of a series of four coordinated suicide attacks by al-Qaeda on the United States, collectively known as the September 11 attacks.
