ONLY 13 FLOORS TO GO, and she and her coworkers would be safe.  They had begun their tenuous trek down the concrete stairwell of Tower One at the 64th floor.  They were so near their goal –  That’s when the building began to sway and the entire tower came crashing down on top of Genelle.  In a matter of seconds, she found herself buried alive – entombed in a coffin of concrete and steel.  Finally, after 23 hours and repeated attempts to break out of her tomb, her hand broke through the surface.
