On September 11th 2001, BBC World reported at 4:57pm Eastern Time that the Salomon Brothers Building (more commonly known as WTC7 or World Trade Building 7) had collapsed.

This even made the 5pm EST headlines; however the building did not actually collapse until 23 minutes later at 5:20pm EST. With the BBC reporter facing the camera, and the WTC 7 clearly visibly over her shoulder, she talks of the tragedy of its collapse while it is still standing.

As the actual collapse time approaches at 5:20, her video feed fuzzes and is completely lost.

9/11 was unusual enough, without BBC World being able to foretell the destiny of WTC 7.
Was her reporting a mistake? Did the BBC learn that WTC7 collapsed 23 minutes before it actually did?

WTC 7 was 47 storeys, modern in design with structural steel throughout, yet symmetrically collapsed in 6.5 seconds freefall speed, which is only seen in controlled demolitions when all supports are removed simultaneously.

No steel framed skyscraper has ever collapsed due to fire, before or after 9/11. Most people who find out about WTC7, believe it was brought down by a controlled demolition, even demolition experts agree. Currently NIST offers no explanation of its collapse but mentions demolition is a possibility. The 9/11 Commission Report does not mention the building at all.
