article imageStudents apologise for Twin Towers 9/11 party costumes

By Lesley Lanir     Nov 6, 2013 in World
Chester - Two 19-year-old students from the University of Chester apologised for dressing up for Halloween as the 9/11 burning Twin Towers, where more than 2,700 people lost their lives.
As reported in The Independent, two students, Amber Langford and Annie Collinge, entered a Halloween fancy dress competition in costumes depicting the 9/11 terrorist attack on New York's Twin Towers.
The student's costumes depicting planes hanging from the towers, explosions and people jumping to their deaths won them first prize and £150 (US$250) in shopping vouchers.
The 19-year-olds said the idea was to ‘depict a serious, modern-day horror’ and the costumes were not meant to taken as a joke.
The Sun which calls the costumes 'sick' in an article titled 'Towering stupidity' reported Ms Langford’s father as flying a United Express plane in the U.S. at the time of the 9/11 attack. He is quoted as saying that he would be “having a little chat” with his daughter and that he did not know about his daughter's costume idea and is not pleased about the incident at all.
