The Dust Lady Has Died

Her picture remains one of the clearest images I remember from media coverage of the attacks.

At the Washington Post, "9/11 ‘Dust Lady’ Marcy Borders, featured in a haunting photo, has died of cancer." And the New York Times, "Marcy Borders, ‘Dust Lady’ Who Survived 9/11, Dies at 42."

Also, watch at the BBC, "Marcy Borders, the Dust Covered Woman in the Iconic 9 11 Photograph, Has Died of Cancer."

She was still a young woman. Of course she believed 9/11 caused her cancer. It's just too much not to believe.

More at the Guardian UK, "Death of 9/11 'dust lady' Marcy Borders renews worry over related cancers."
