Kevin Cosgrove was the vice president of claims for the Aon Corporation based in the South Tower of the World Trade Center.

At the trial of Zacarias Moussaoui, this 9-1-1 phone call Cosgrove placed from the South Tower was played. In the phone call, Cosgrove could be heard repeating his location several times — he had sought shelter in the office of John Ostaru with another individual, Doug Cherry.

The phone call is notable as it is one of the few audio recordings made just before and during the collapse of Two World Trade Center.

“Three of us, two broken windows,” Cosgrove tells the 9-1-1 dispatcher, followed by some rumbling and shouts of “Oh God! Oh —.” Then line goes silent. [YouTube]

terribly haunting.
