World Trade Center's "Survivors Staircase" Moved

A portion of staircase from the World Trade Center that provided an escape route for some survivors of the September 11 attacks was moved from its original site on Sunday ahead of its installation in a memorial museum.

The so-called survivors staircase, which had stood amid the rubble of the trade center and the later construction site as rebuilding commenced, was lifted intact with a giant crane onto a flatbed truck and moved some 200 feet away.

It will later be installed in the World Trade Center Memorial Museum, where the intact fragment roughly one story high and consisting of about 35 steps will serve as the centerpiece.
