MANHATTAN, New York - It's been 25 years since February 26, 1993, when terrorists set off a homemade bomb in a parking garage under the World Trade Center's twin towers.

Six people died, including a pregnant woman, and more than 1, 000 were injured in the massive explosion.

Eyewitness News pulled video from its archives to show you our coverage of the events as it happened at the time of the events.

Hospitals received an enormous flow of patients like they've never seen - as many as six injury victims were packed into a single ambulance.
