She had said that she was hurt on the 78th floor of the south tower and had been saved by a man who later died. Tania Head was voted off the board of the World Trade Center Survivors' Network, a charity set up to support survivors of the attack, after the group couldn't verify the details of her story. It is alleged that Head 'couldn't or wouldn't' verify her survivors account, and that she had changed parts of her account to different board members of the group. One of the network, Elia Zedeno, said: 'She's no longer part of our organization," adding that she did not know Head's whereabouts. 'This is a tremendous shock to all of us, not just as an organization, but as a friend.'
According to the New York Times, Head had claimed to have been rescued from the 78th floor of the World Trade Center's south tower by a firefighter and had said she was engaged to a man named Dave who perished in the north tower.The paper said it has been unable to verify any part of her story, including the company she worked for, her engagement or details of her rescue.
Well that was in 2007. I saw a trailer for the new documentary scheduled to run on Channel 4 and I'm interested in what they will be able to add to this deeply confusing story.
