These people knew their fate, they concluded that jumping would yield a higher chance of survival.
A lot of these people attempted to glide and it has been confirmed that some have tried parachuting before the wind ripped their makeshift parachutes out of their hands.
These people jumped hoping to survive.

Ya know what people. Today of all days we should have some bloody repsect in this forum. I don't care what you beleive. 3000 dead people, thousands of families with no father , mother, brothers sisters sons daughter....
I don't give a toss about what you beleive. You are an insignificant little nobody on a web forum.
Today we show some respect to those that died, we don't just try and say the stupidest thing we can in order to start a fight. If you have not got anything intelligent to say, or are not intelligent enough to say something productive, the shut the # up!

I thought how awful it was that no one wanted to claim him because he 'jumped' as opposed to fell, and thereby in the eyes of the religious committed a sin.
Last I heard, Jesus claimed all sinners as his equal, he especially took in and helped the sinners.
Most people who consider themselves "Religious" are usually HypoChristians, they'll tell you to live by the word of God/Jesus as they patronize, judge, & shun you on their way to Walmart to buy goods made by child slaves from China.

36 As it is written:“ For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”[ a]
37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us fro
m the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord
