Angels at the World Trade Center

Singing Angels

Recently, people who live in New York have reported some unusual sights and sounds seen and heard near ground zero.

On September 11, 2001, when the World Trade Center in New York City was ruthlessly attacked by terrorists in hijacked planes--thousands of innocent victims died. These murders will never be forgotten.

New Yorkers vividly remember the horrific sights, sounds and smells of that day. The smoke as the towers were hit, the acid smell as they burned and the loud roar as they collapsed.

Even more heartbreaking was the sight of people jumping to their deaths, the sounds as they hit the pavement below, and then the thousands of photographs and posters hung showing the faces of the missing.

One World Trade Center
Twelve years after this horrendous attack a new building--formally known as Freedom Tower now called One World Trade Center stands near ground zero. This building represents the fact that America and Americans always recover--we remain strong.

In this place, where thousands died senselessly it should be noted that several witnesses have experienced an inspiring phenomenon.

Kenny Cummings who lives a couple of blocks from this newly opened tower has heard what sounds like a choir of angels singing coming from the WTC area.

Cummings describes these sounds as “unmistakable and very chilling.” He first heard this sound during Hurricane Sandy in the fall of 2012.

Another witness, Erik Torkells, captured this sound on a video he took. He uploaded it to YouTube. 

Here is a link to the sounds he recorded. Could this just be the wind, a nearby church choir or angels? I leave it to the reader to decide.

Angel’s Face in Twisted Steel

The National September 11 Memorial and Museum located at ground zero has the image of an angel’s face in twisted steel.

Construction workers at this museum located underground first noted this face. It was quickly dubbed, “Angel of 9/11.”

Sad Face
Witnesses state that when looked at the right angle, this sad face emerges. It has dark eyes, a nose, and an open mouth.

North Tower Girder
This face is seen on a piece of twisted steel, which was a girder recovered from the North Tower, hit by a hijacked plane on 9/11. Several groups have come forward to give “logical.” explanations for this phenomenon.

Most likely it is just pareidolia at work--I explain what this is here and here.

Again, I leave it to the reader to decide whether this is an angel or just the witnesses’ brains making sense of random patterns.
