Haunting ‘new’ 9/11 photos reveal horror of Ground Zero devastation
These haunting pictures show the scene at New York’s World Trade Centre after crazed terrorists flew planes into the two skyscrapers causing thousands of deaths and mass destruction.
After spotting the two towers engulfed by flames, Dr Emil Chynn, now 50, rushed to downtown Manhattan in a bid to understand what had happened.
Following decades helping sick people, Dr Chynn took it upon himself to get down to the burning buildings to help victims at the scene rather than waiting for them to get to hospital.
Once at Ground Zero, the medic got straight to work by setting up a treatment facility that he claims was the first triage on-site.

Now, 18 years after the terror attack that changed the world, Dr Chynn has released a series of images taken during a week of volunteering.
He said: "When I saw the plumes of smoke coming from downtown I knew I had to go and see what was going on.
"Having worked in a hospital during a previous terror attack scare, I knew that I would be more useful at the scene if people were injured, so I put on my rollerblades and headed down.
"As soon as I arrived I was surrounded by smoke, debris and paper inches deep but I had to go and find the buildings.

"Along the way I met other volunteers and after about 30 minutes of looking we found the remains of the Twin Towers, which were only about three stories high."
Describing his first actions, Dr Chynn explained: "I quickly did what I could to help and – as [one of the first doctors] on the scene – set up the first triage centre.
"I was on the scene volunteering for about a week and captured these photos while I was there.

"They were captured on a film camera, so took me a while to get them developed, but as soon as I got the physical photos back I knew I had to share them.
"As distressing as the time was and the photos are, they show the pure compassion that people have for other strangers.
"Everyone looks back on what happened in dismay at the human race instead of how a city came together to risk their lives and help people they didn't even know."
2,977 people died and 10,000 were treated for injuries following the 9/11 attacks.
