9/11 remains vivid for terror attack survivor
A SURVIVOR of the September 11 terrorist attack in New York says the vividness of the day will never leave him.
But Ian Robb, 70, of Glade Road, Marlow, speaking on the eleventh anniversary, said he thinks about it less often now.
Last year, the Free Press featured Mr Robb's remarkable tale of how he was just a split second from death.

Having started the day behind schedule and running late he just missed a lift up to the 78th floor of the World Trade Centre, where he worked.
The people in that lift died, but incredibly, he escaped despite getting in the following elevator which began its ascent just as the Al Qaeda suicide bombers struck.
Although he faced a terrifying ordeal becoming trapped in the lift, he got out and fled in time to get out of harm's way.
Mr Robb said: “The vividness will never go away but the frequency I think about it has been reduced.
“You still get twinges of guilt because there were a lot of colleagues and friends of mine who were lost. It's not fair to put that out of your mind totally, so I'm glad of the reminder occasionally.”
