After the first plane hit the Twin Towers, many people in the second tower called home to tell their loved ones they were safe, some were still on the phone when the second plane hit and disconnected their calls.

The same thing happened to a few people in London on Thursday. Miriam Hyman was one of them:

The 31-year-old spoke to her father on her mobile phone to say she had been evacuated from an underground train at King's Cross. She died in the explosion on the No 30 bus.

Her death is tragic no matter what, but when you think that she walked out of the frying pan into the fire, it's one of those moments where you know her father wishes he had told her something, wishes he had somehow intervened in her fate. It somehow makes the suffering of those left behind a little harder, when they think they may have been able to change things.
