Woman's 9/11 survival story questioned

Tania Head has said that she was badly burned on the 78th floor of the south tower, that she was saved by a man who died trying to save others, and that a dying man handed her his inscribed wedding ring, which she later returned to his widow.

She also said her husband, or fiance, died in the north tower.

The New York Times reported Thursday that none of her claims had been verified. She has described her 9/11 experiences at speaking engagements and led Tribute WTC Visitor Center tours, and her account has appeared, among other places, on the Web site of the World Trade Center Survivors Network.

The board of the nonprofit organization removed her as president and director this week.

"Tania Head is no longer associated with the World Trade Center Survivors' Network," according to a statement on the group's Web site. "Our organization was created so that those affected by the terrorist attacks could help each other through crisis and its aftermath."

Head also is no longer giving tours at the Tribute center. "At this time, we are unable to confirm the veracity of Tania Head's connection to the events of Sept. 11," said the center's CEO, Jennifer Adams.

The Times said Merrill Lynch & Company, where Head told people she had worked, had no record of her employment. She has claimed she had a romantic relationship with a man who is a confirmed 9/11 victim, but the Times said his family and friends had never heard of Head and they discount details of her story.

No telephone listing exists for a Tania Head in New York City. A message left by The Associated Press at a local telephone number for an Alicia Head — a name the Times said Head had also used — was not immediately returned Wednesday.

The Times said Head canceled three interviews in recent weeks, citing her privacy and emotional turmoil, and declined to provide details to corroborate her story. She also told the newspaper she had done nothing illegal and had not filed any claim with the federal Victim Compensation Fund.

She earned no money as president of the survivors group or as a tour guide at ground zero, according to the Times.

What a load of bull. Why would you do something like that besides the obvious answer of being crazy? I could see the motive it she was getting money and ripping them off because some people like to be scumbags but she was not getting paid so did she just need to be part of something??

for the attention. She was probably one of those people that think thier own life is an insignificant nothing so they latch onto something like that and try to be a part of it.

I think most of us would actually be quite suprised at how many people out there make up huge parts of thier lifes to try to not look like such losers. I used to work with a guy who always told us about his girlfreind, house, freinds in high places, etc... and I later found out (from his brother) that it was all a big lie.
