VIDEO: Gut Feeling Saved Montville Woman on 9/11
Rosalee Keech knew when the first plane hit that it was a terrorist act so she fled the north tower.
Rosalee Keech, a 28-year resident of Montville, took the PATH to the World Trade Center on 9/11 and she was in the north tower when the attacks happened.
Keech, 60, whose father is a Holocaust survivor, got out of the north tower as fast as she could and made her way to her company's office on Pine Street, where she called her husband to have him tell their son not to take the subway.
"I remember telling everybody at work ... 'I don't do terrorist attacks,' and I knew that's what it was. I left the building and everybody else stayed and then when I got to the street there was still a lot of panic on the street," she said.
"And I'm trying to think where should I go? I knew I shouldn't walk toward Wall Street. I knew I should walk away from it. So I started walking uptown and you could see the Twin Towers on fire."
