In Memoriam - Melissa Harrington Hughes

Melissa Harrington Hughes was a San Francisco resident who was in New York at the World Trade Center on 9/11/01 on business when the first plane hit. She was trapped on the upper floors of the World Trade Center and was not able to make it out.

She was 31 years old.

Both Tania at Midnight Blue and Prof. Jacobson at Legal Insurrection have placed the following video of a phone call she made to her husband, who was still asleep in San Francisco.

For those of us who lived in the Bay Area at the time, hearing this phone call over the local news was a raw nerve. You couldn't help but weep as you heard this precious voice, knowing she would not make it out of the building alive.

There really are no words to adequately describe how heartbreaking it is to listen to this recording.
