A woman caught the moment a shop owner saved her from a wall of dust during the 9/11 attack. Watch the incident unfold below:
After a cloud of deadly dust was making its way across the city, the owner of the shop wouldn't let a woman leave the store to collect her belongings.
The woman complained: "My s*** is out there, my s*** is out there."
Whilst the shop owner refused to open the door.
Another employee shouted: "The whole building, watch the debris come down the street.
"Don't open the door please."
As the dust completely covers the windows of the store, the woman is screaming 'oh my God, oh my God'.
"You're right, oh my God, you saved my life," the woman says, with a huge sigh of relief.
The incredible footage was shared by u/PigParkerPt2 on Reddit today (12 Sep) and has already racked up over 46,000 likes.

Yesterday (11 Sep) marked the 20th anniversary of the chilling terrorist attacks in 2001.
US president, Joe Biden, took to social media to issue a tribute to those who tragically lost their lives.
20 years after September 11, 2001, we commemorate the 2,977 lives we lost and honor those who risked and gave their lives. As we saw in the days that followed, unity is our greatest strength. It's what makes us who we are - and we can't forget that. pic.twitter.com/WysK8m3LAb- President Biden (@POTUS) September 10, 2021
