But 340 company workers escape disaster in World Trade Center...

A Sun Microsystems employee was onboard the American Airlines plane that crashed into the World Trade Center on Tuesday, however the company also reported that all 340 of its workers based in the building escaped safely. Phil Rosenzweig, a software organisation director with Sun, was on his way to Los Angeles on flight 11 when terrorists took control of the plane. Sun rented floors 25 and 26 of the World Trade Center's south tower, which was the first to collapse on Tuesday. The offices were occupied by the company's global sales and enterprise services groups.
