In Memory of Daniel Mark Lewin. The first victim of 9/11.

Daniel Mark Lewin was 31 years old and from Denver, Colorado. Daniel was a passenger on American Airlines Flight 11.

On September 11, 2001, Daniel was traveling on American Airlines Flight 11, heading from Boston to Los Angeles. He was seated in business class in seat 9B, close to 3 hijackers Mohamed Atta, Abdulaziz al-Omari and al Suqami. It was first reported that he had been shot by al Suqami, although this assertion was later changed to a stabbing. According to the 9/11 Commission, he was stabbed by one of the hijackers, probably Satam al Suqami, who was seated directly behind him. This may have occurred when Daniel tried to confront one of the hijackers in front of him, not realising that al Suqami was sitting just behind him.

Daniel was identified as the first victim of the September 11 attacks.

  1. Tears stream down my face as I think of this tragic day. I don't want to be in the dark of this happened to a lot of people I don't know. I want to know who they were, the lives they led and what made them special and loved. I've read many accounts of the people who perished that day. I am blessed to have found this site to know their lives, not just how they passed from this life into eternity. My prayers continue with each of the families of our heroes.
