Marcy Borders, Subject Of Iconic 9/11 'Dust Lady' Photo, Dies After Battle With Stomach Cancer. Borders was working as a legal assistant for Bank of America on Sept. 11, 2001. Her office was on the 81st floor of 1 World Trade Center when terrorists attacked the twin towers with a pair of commercial airplanes. Then 28, Borders forced her way down the stairwell to the street and stepped onto the sidewalk just as the south tower began to fall. A stranger pulled her into the lobby of a nearby building as the other tower began to tumble, and photographer Stan Honda snapped a photograph. The ghostly shot of Borders, dust-caked and stunned, became one of the most vivid images of the terrible tragedy that took more than 2,900 innocent lives.
