This column once stood in the core of the South Tower, probably between floors 30 and 33.  During the tower's collapse, extreme stresses caused this multi-ton piece of steel to fold over onto itself.  Three of the four welds that held the column together split open.  (Photo from National September 11 Museum by Jayna Smith)
