The YouTube posting is legitimate, and the female BBC reporter delivering a live report right around 5 p.m. Eastern time on Sept. 11, 2001, clearly shows the 47-story Salomon Brothers building still standing, background right, 23 minutes before it actually collapsed, but she and the BBC desk in London are sitting there and reporting that it was already down! Wow, I don't really believe this. In fact the building looks like it is not even under any kind of stress as she is speaking. Granted, some fires were occurring within the building, smaller fires, maybe one or two in the upper floors and a couple in the lower floors, but the building was far enough away not to actually be affected much by the collapse of the Twin Towers which had occurred some eight hours before.

I agree with Kathy. I've not seen the YouTube posting yet. Can you post the link please? But the building did collapse in the end? If the building did not collapse then she'd be in a lot of trouble, right?

Wow they need to get their facts right before reporting anything like this,. Oh I just think that the reporter was trying to seek attention for herself. That is dreadful and she should be reported and charged.
