NYPD Cops' Confusion Amid the Chaos

Missiles fired from the Woolworth Building. Multiple aircraft over Manhattan set to dive into other buildings. Explosions blocks from the towers.

These were just a few of the rumors whipping through the radios of Port Authority cops minutes after the 9/11 attacks.

"The Woolworth Building! The Woolworth Building! They're shooting at the trade center from the Woolworth Building," an officer yells.

Another panicked officer said, "There's f- - -ing explosions going off on Vesey Street."
