The First On-Scene Doctor Has Released Unseen Images He Took At 9/11 Site

It’s been 18 years since the 9/11 terror attacks left devastation and bloodshed on the streets of New York.

These recently unearthed, chilling, unseen photos released by a doctor who claims to have been first on the scene show the true impact the attacks had on everyone and everything on that disturbing, horrific day.

Dr Emil Chynn explains he was walking his dog at the same time he saw the Twin Towers burning on September 11, 2001.

This prompted him to put his rollerblades on and rush to see what was going on.

Horrifically, 3,000 people died in the terror attack that saw planes hijacked and flown into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon outside Washington, DC, and another crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

The terrifying ordeal has had lasting effects on the people caught up in the terror attack as well as the people who helped to save the injured.

Dr Chynn was certain that his medical skills were needed more than ever to help victims at the scene of the attack instead of rushing to a hospital to help there.

Dr Chynn got straight to the scene and started to help people immediately.

Dr Chynn, now 50, has released a number of never-seen-before photographs taken from the week he volunteered at the scene… although they are truly heartbreaking, he wants the world to see the kindness of strangers during such a terrifying time.

Dr Chynn said:

“When I saw the plumes of smoke coming from downtown I knew I had to go and see what was going on.

Having worked in a hospital during a previous terror attack scare, I knew that I would be more use at the scene if people were injured, so I put on my rollerblades and headed down.

As soon as I arrived I was surrounded by smoke, debris and paper inches deep but I had to go and find the buildings.

Along the way I met other volunteers and after about 30 minutes of looking we found the remains of the Twin Towers, which were only about three stories high.”

Labelling the scene ‘awful’ he stated that ‘people were trying to clear debris and body parts from all over the place.’

Chynn continued:

“I quickly did what I could to help and – as [one of the first doctors] on the scene – set up the first triage centre.

I was on the scene volunteering for about a week and captured these photos while I was there.

They were captured on a film camera, so took me a while to get them developed, but as soon as I got the physical photos back I knew I had to share them.

As distressing as the time was and the photos are, they show the pure compassion that people have for other strangers.

Everyone looks back on what happened in dismay at the human race instead of how a city came together to risk their lives and help people they didn’t even know.”

Sadly, since the disturbing attacks, people who helped the injured such as firefighters, police and others working at Ground Zero have fallen ill as a result of the toxins they were exposed to from the wreckage. This has had lasting effects on their health and well being as well as the mental pictures they will always have of that day.

A lot of those involved developed respiratory and digestive system illnesses which is supposedly linked to inhalation of dust. Some sadly were diagnosed with cancer.

9/11 is the most deadly terror attack in the history of the United States.

9/11 claimed the lives of 2,996 people including 19 hijackers and 2,606 people at the World Trade Center and in the surrounding area.

When the North and South towers both collapsed the debris alone caused more deaths on the ground below… it was truly devastating.

The innocent people who lost their lives will never be forgotten and our thoughts are everyone who was involved in that horrific day that have no escape from remembering the terrible scenes and memories that impacted their lives.
