On the pull it statementIf Pull it is a demolition term. You can verify by calling a demolition company or look it up.
On September 9, 2005,[red]Mr. Dara McQuillan, a spokesman for Silverstein Properties[/red], issued the following statement on this issue:
Seven World Trade Center collapsed at 5:20 p.m. on September 11, 2001, after burning for seven hours. There were no casualties, thanks to the heroism of the Fire Department and the work of Silverstein Properties employees who evacuated tenants from the building.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) conducted a thorough investigation of the collapse of all the World Trade Center buildings. The FEMA report concluded that the collapse of Seven World Trade Center was a direct result of fires triggered by debris from the collapse of WTC Tower
In the afternoon of September 11, Mr. Silverstein spoke to the Fire Department Commander on site at Seven World Trade Center. The Commander told Mr. Silverstein that there were several firefighters in the building working to contain the fires. Mr. Silverstein expressed his view that the most important thing was to protect the safety of those firefighters, including, if necessary, to have them withdraw from the building.
Later in the day, the Fire Commander ordered his firefighters out of the building and at 5:20 p.m. the building collapsed. No lives were lost at Seven World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.
As noted above, when Mr. Silverstein was recounting these events for a television documentary he stated,I said, you know, we've had such terrible loss of life. Maybe the smartest thing to do is to pull it.[red]Mr. McQuillan has stated that by it, Mr. Silverstein meant the contingent of firefighters remaining in the building.[/red]
doesnt accept that Silversteins quote is in itself evidence of that. He reports:
I mailed Jowenko BV and asked if 'pull' was an industry term for 'demolish'. They said it wasn't. Implosionworld said the same thing. I run into the same problem when looking into different dictionaries. There is always a distinction made between 'pull down','pull away' and 'pull back'. And I have not been able to find one person on the internet who uses this word as a substitute for 'demolish'.[/b] So I think it's safe to assume that Larry needs to clarify what he meant, but unfortunately he refuses to do that.
