On September 11 the world was changed and changed utterly.


What started out just like any other day, at the end of summer, as the world prepared for fall, four planes were hijacked.

The first plane, American Airlines Flight 11, crashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Center. Just over fifteen minutes later, United Airlines Flight 175, crashed into the South Tower.

Shortly afterwards American Airlines Flight 77 was deliberately crashed into the Pentagon. While just over twenty minutes later, United Airlines Flight 93 crashed into a field in Pennsylvania, after the hijackers were overpowered by passengers... It's believed United Airlines Flight 93 was heading for the White House or the Capitol.

2,977 people were killed.

One of them was Brian Sweeney.

Brian was on board United Airlines Flight 175. He had been travelling from Boston to Los Angeles when his plane was hijacked by al-Quaeda terrorists, who diverted the journey to New York.

Shortly before the plane crashed into the South Tower, Brian called his wife and left a voicemail.

In the heartbreaking voicemail, the brave and loving husband, can be heard saying:

Jules, this is Brian. Listen, I'm on an airplane that's been hijacked. If things don't go well, and it's not looking good.

"I just want you to know I absolutely love you. I want you to do good, go have good times - same to my parents and everybody."

And I just totally love you, and I'll see you when you get there.
Bye babe. I hope I call you.

While the voicemail has been online for years, it was recently shared on TikTok, and listeners are completely devastated by Brian's final heartbreaking words to his wife.

One person said: "Damn, this broke my heart dude."

Another added: "Omg my heart."

A third wrote: "Imagine waking up, hearing planes crashed into the Twin Towers, and then checking your voicemail and seeing this."

Another said: "The 'I'll see you when you get here' just heartbreaking."
