the towers of the World Trade Center.

and trying to figure out

exactly what happened, but, clearly,

something relatively devastating

happening this morning there.

We're going to join

another one of our New York affiliates

for their live coverage.

Here at the top of this tower, there's

a huge, gaping hole, flames still inside.

Can you believe this?

What schmuck would fly a plane

into the Trade Center?

Maybe they ran out of gas or something.

Yeah, Colovito. Right.

Maybe some jerk-off forgot

which lever to pull on his twin-engine.

That's not a small plane.

Hell, no.

All right, listen up!

Let me have your attention here!

They're telling us it's a commuter plane.
