TONIGHT ON THE "CBS EVENING NEWS WITH SCOTT PELLEY": A CBS NEWS PHOTOJOURNALIST'S RIVETING FOOTAGE FROM 9/11 AND PERSONAL REFLECTIONS ABOUT WHAT HE SAW, HEARD AND THE PEOPLE HE ENCOUNTERED AS THE DAY'S EVENTS UNFOLDED

On the morning of September 11, 2001, former CBS News photojournalist Mark LaGanga was sent to downtown Manhattan to shoot what, at that time, was thought to be an accident at the World Trade Center.   In a unique piece on THE CBS EVENING NEWS WITH SCOTT PELLEY tonight, LaGanga narrates the footage he shot on the morning of 9/11 as he navigated through an almost unrecognizable area of New York City.  He also shares his personal reflections about what he saw, heard and the people he interacted with as the U.S. first comprehended that a terrorist attack had ensued.    

LaGanga's account of the events of 9/11 will be broadcast tonight on THE CBS EVENING NEWS WITH SCOTT PELLEY (6:30PM, ET), on the CBS Television Network.  Patricia Shevlin is the executive producer.
