Eunice Hanson and Lee Hanson

On September 11, 2001, Eunice Hanson and Lee Hanson lost their son Peter, their daughter-in-law Sue-Kim, and their granddaughter Christine Lee when United Airline flight 175 was flown into the World Trade Center’s South Tower.

That morning Peter called his parents from the plane telling his father, “Dad, we’ve been hijacked…I think they’ve already killed somebody and I don’t think the pilot’s in control of the plane.” Lee was still on the phone with Peter when the plane crashed.

Eunice and Lee came to StoryCorps to talk about that day.
