三分钟英文故事之I Survived the Attacks of September 11th, 2001(1)


(1)

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 112001

846 A.M.

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK

A bright blue sky stretched over New York City.

It was the morning rush [1]. Men and women hurried to work. Taxis, cars, and buses zoomed [2] through the streets.

And then there was the plane.

Many people in Lower Manhattan heard it before they saw it — the screaming roar [3] of jet [4] engines.

The massive [5] aircraft [6] streaked [7] through the sky, hardy skimming over rooftops.

Up and down the sidewalks, people froze. Eleven-year-old Lucas Calley wasn’t supposed to be in Manhattan that day. His parents had no idea that he’d caught a train into the city, that he was there, on a crowded sidewalk, looking up as it all began.

Lucas watched, almost hypnotized [8], as the plane careened through the sky.

He’d never seen a plane flying so low.

It was so close he could read the letters on the tail: AA.

American Airlines [9].

Panicked questions swirled through his mind.

Was there something wrong with (he plane?

Was the pilot [10] sack? Lost? Confused [11]?

Pull up [12]! Lucas wanted to shout. Go higher!

But the plane kept getting lower.

And faster.

And now Lucas’s hear stopped as he saw what was in the plane’s path: the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center. The silver-and-glass buildings, each a quarter of [13] a mile tall, rose high above the New York City skyline [14].

The plane sped up.

No!

With one last ferocious [15] roar, the jet plunged into the side of one of the towers.

There was a thundering explosion.

People all around Lucas screamed.

And then the bright blue sky filled with black smoke and fire.
