In this photo you can see Moira Smith – an NYPD agent – can be seen taking a wounded man away from the World Trade Center after the 9/11 terrorist assaults. After a couple of minutes, she entered the World Trade Center’s south tower to assist in the evacuation process of other victims when the building crashed down. She was the only female NYPD executive to die that tragic day. Also, she was the first police personnel to recount the attacks after seeing the first tower struck by the aircraft.
The woman needs to be applauded for her bravery; in the face of disaster, she showed tremendous courage. Hats off to her and others like her who risk their lives to save others!
This bridesmaid couldn’t handle the heat, so she passed out in the kitchen…or, at the altar. The bride and groom are so happy it seems like they don’t even notice! It must be true love, they only have eyes for each other! Okay but seriously, is anyone here a doctor? Please help!
The happy couple didn’t notice until people in the audience started pointing and shouting. But hey, at least the rest of the wedding went smoothly!
When St. Louis Tragically Lost Its Mayor
William Becker served as the mayor during the years 1941-43. On the fateful day of August 1, 1943, he partook in a demo session for a new airplane. Right after take-off, the plane’s right wing came apart, and all ten passengers met their death. This photo features the crew before taking off.
The glider was being towed by a transport plane for a ride around the city. Promptly after the towing cable was released, the right wing of the plane tore apart and it dived 1500 feet down, resulting in the loss of 15 lives.
Plane in Flames
This is the perturbing final image of the Pacific Southwest Airlines Flight 182. The star-crossed airplane crashed with another aircraft above San Diego on September 25th, 1978, at 9:00. All 137 travelers on board died, as well as 7 others on the ground. Twenty homes were damaged due to the collision’s impact.
This air crash was Pacific Southwest Airlines' first-ever deadly crash and occurred in spite of being handled by 5 well-trained pilots.
No, Not My Cake!
When all you want to do is sit down on your birthday and nom-nom-nom on some delicious birthday cake, but the cake has other plans. Her face says it all: “NO, NOT MY CHEESECAKE!” We definitely feel for her. But at least she doesn’t have to work quite so hard at the gym this week.
Plus, she was bouncing back and forth between the cheesecake and the chocolate pie, anyways. This was just the universe’s way of telling her that she should have ordered the chocolate in the first place! Waiter!
