‘Dust Lady’ from iconic 9/11 photo dies of cancer


Washington: A survivor of the September 11, 2001 strikes on New York who had been featured in among the very iconic pictures of the outrage has died of stomach cancer.

Her departure was announced by the family of Marcy Borders on Facebook on Monday.

Borders, who was 28 at that time of the assaults, was one month right into a job for Bank of America in among the Twin Towers.

The atmosphere seemed not light as well as an eerie yellow luminescence shrouded in a cloud of dust and backlit a distraught Borders.

Her cousin Elnardo Borders “May God Comfort .us in our time of grief. My emotions are around the area right now.”

He afterwards wrote: “She @ serenity now!!!”

Following the strikes, Borders corkscrew right into a decade-long heavy melancholy and substance and alcohol misuse, though she finally recovered after many years.

Where she discounted repeated offers of a transport, she lost her job at Bank of America.
