WNEP anchor Jon Meyer remembered being the first reporter on the scene of the crash of Flight 93 on September 11, 2001. Speaking this weekend at a memorial service at the Shanksville, PA field where the plane went down, the anchor for the ABC affiliate in Scranton, shared his memories of that day with a large crowd that included victims’ families, according to the Citizens’ Voice.
”My first words were, ‘The only way to describe this scene is haunting,’” Meyer recalled Monday. “I could hear it in my voice all these years later, knowing I stood right next to where so many people died.”
Meyer said, at the time he was a 24-year old reporter working for WJAC in Johnstown.
