An individual with high level security clearance who was inside the Office of Emergency Management in World Trade Center 7 [...] has descibed and detailed explosions inside the building prior to the collapse of any of the buildings at ground zero on 9/11.In an interview with Dylan Avery and Jason Bermas, the individual (whose name has not yet been released) said:
"We [...] went to the stairwell and were going down the stairs, when we reached the sixth floor, the landing that we were standing on gave way, there was an explosion and the landing gave way. I was left there hanging, I had to climb back up and now had to walk back up to the eighth floor. After getting to the eighth floor everything was dark."When they got to the lobby,
"It was totally destroyed, it looked like King Kong had been through it and stepped on it and it was so destroyed I didn't know where I was. It was so destroyed that had to take me out through a hole in the wall, a makeshift hole I believe the fire department made to get me out."As Steve Watson points out,
He was then told by firefighters to get twenty blocks away from the area because explosions were going off all over the World Trade Center complex.
This all happened BEFORE either tower collapsed, thus building 7 was at that point completely undamaged from any falling debris or resulting fires.You can find more details, including audio clips of the interview, here.
