In Memory of Christopher Hanley

Christopher Hanley was 34 years old and from New York, NY.

On the the morning of September 11, 2001, Christopher was attending a breakfast conference sponsored by Risk Waters Group at Windows on the World on the 106th floor of the North Tower at the World Trade Center. Only minutes after American Airlines Flight 11 hit between the 93rd and 97th floors, Christopher managed to dial 9-1-1 to report the explosion.

The video above is the actual 9-1-1 call that Christopher made on 9/11. The first photograph shows a picture of Christopher Hanley, the second photograph shown in the video was actually taken at Windows On The World that morning and shows Christopher Hanley (on the left) talking to another conference guest William "Bill" Kelly Jr. The photographer who took the picture left the building just before the plane struck the tower. Both Christopher Hanley and Bill Kelly did not survive.


  1. I went to Boston College with Chris, and we were in Political Science together. He was a gentleman and always kind. I hope he rests in heaven. God Bless.
