Buildings Burn and Fall as Onlookers Search for Elusive Safety
Eyewitness accounts. It's interesting to learn what people focus on in a crisis. The perception narrows down to what is important, and the horror only registers when the immediate danger is not as acute. People seems to have panicked in the street outside and around the building, but not inside, where the only thing they would do was to make their way.

Can this be because inside, there was only one option, and there was no need for the indecision of panic? Or have we just not heard of those who panicked, because they never got out?
