Remembering 9/11: News 12 anchor recalls reporting on attacks

As the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks nears, News 12 anchor Brian Conybeare is recalling the jarring experience of reporting from lower Manhattan that day.

Conybeare says he began reporting that day from midtown Manhattan and remembers seeing people streaming north from the World Trade Center, many with tears in their eyes.

Later, Conybeare got about four blocks from Ground Zero and vividly recalls the smoke that filled the air and the soot strewn all over the sidewalk.

The attacks at the World Trade Center killed 2,753 people.
