Reddit user u/Unkn0wn314 has one lucky mother, who was late for work in the WTC on Sept. 11. She was busy taking care of the reddit user, who was a baby at the time, because the babysitter was busy that day. The reddit user's mom missed her bus, and eventually got on the next one. 

She ended up witnessing the destruction from the bus. Needless to say, her tardiness came as a total blessing.
