Hunt Whitehead represented an employee of the Pentagon, who was lucky to survive the attack on 9/11. She would have been killed if she had not left her desk to go to the fax machine. Everyone who worked in her area was killed but her. The fax machined was located behind a fortified wall that protected her from being burned. She was able to escape with minor physical injuries. She developed cancer, but the Victim’s Fund administration did not agree with Mr. Whitehead argument when he presented the case at the Department of Justice.
