Ms Head, who become the president of a non-profit group called the World Trade Centre Survivors' Network, claimed to have been badly burned on the 78th floor of the south tower but was saved by a man who died trying to rescue others.
She also said another victim had handed her his inscribed wedding ring before he died, which she later returned to his widow. And she claimed her fiancé, died in the north tower. But no part of her incredible story has been verified :
The family and friends of the man to whom she claimed to be engaged say they have never heard of Tania Head and view the relationship she describes with the man, who truly died in the north tower, as an impossibility.
A spokeswoman for Merrill Lynch & Company, where she told people she worked at the time of the terror attack, said the company had no record of employing a Tania Head. [Quoted from The New York Times]
