More than 6000 people were injured. The heroes on United Airlines Flight 93, a Boeing 757, that disrupted the hijackers plans, crashing the

plane in a Pennsylvania field, possibly saving a countless number of lives at the terrorists intended destination. Osama bin Laden’s al-Qaeda was responsible for the attacks under the direct planning by Khalid Shaikh Mohammed.
