In Memory of Edna Cintron

In Memory of Edna Cintron

Edna Cintron was 46 years old and from New York, N.Y. (Born in Puerto Rico). Edna worked as an administrative assistant for Marsh & McLennan Cos. Inc in the North Tower of the World Trade Center.

Edna Cintron - The Waving Woman

When American Airlines Flight 11 struck the North Tower at 8:46 am on September 11, 2001, Edna amazingly survived the impact. She is referred to as "the waving woman". For a great amount of time she stood at the edge of the the hole left by Flight 11 and looked out over New York City, waving desperately for help, while the building burned around her.

Edna's family identified her in the picture by her hair, dress, and gutsy persistance.


  1. I saw the pictures of Edna CINTRON the edge of the gaping hole left by the Jet in a desperate expectation that we know of any help.
    I listened to the recording of the distress call from Melissa DOI Emergency Service 911 or the poor American girl describes the intense heat of the fire she suffered. I still hear him say with awe "I Died ... I am gonna mo ... Uriri" in a voice sometimes rebellious and sometimes frightened, scared.
    I read the story of Betty Ong, a flight attendant on Flight 11 who remained in contact with the ground to tell what was going on board his plane.
    I just lived in the U.S., I just worked there, I evolved alongside people fully comparable to those who died in both towers.
    I liked the people I knew at that time and who welcomed me in an exceptional way.
    I have not forgotten..

  2. I wish her everlasting peace God Bless You Edna

  3. I can imagine the angels swooped you up no more fear, no more tears, no more pain. God Bless.

  4. You 9/11 Truthers are nuts and dishonor the memories of all those we lost on that tragic day.

    1. No, the exact opposite, us in the truth community are honouring all the victims of 9/11.

  5. May God keep you in the comfort of his arms, Edna.
