BILL HEMMER, CNN ANCHOR: We want to shift our attention now across town on the island of Manhattan, south end of the island, the World Trade Center. A breaking news story developing there.
Apparently there is a problem with an elevator inside the World Trade Center a short time ago. The information we have, and it's not much just yet, but apparently 22 people were on an elevator that did experience difficulties earlier today. It is said that minor injuries did occur as a result of this accident there. These pictures, you're seeing a live picture now as people mill on the street below, from -- courtesy of WCBS, our affiliate there in New York City.
Again, an elevator accident just a short time ago. Twenty-two people onboard that elevator, said to be minor injuries. As we get more details we'll certainly bring them to you. Emergency crews indeed have responded to the scene as you can tell from that live picture.
