New York City (May 28, 2002) Aid workers sign the last piece of debris to be removed from 'Ground Zero'. The event marked the final removal of the last remaining World Trade Center structure, Column Number 1001B of Two World Trade Center. The 30-foot column remained standing following the collapse of the twin towers, when terrorists flew two commercial airliners into both skyscrapers on September 11, 2001. The resulting collapse created a mountain of 1.8 million tons of steel and concrete. More than 3000 people perished in the attack. U.S. Navy photo by Photographer's Mate 2nd Class Bob Houlihan.
