All 58 passengers, four flight attendant ants and 2 pilots died, along with 125 victims in the Pentagon.  There were 70 civilian casualties and 55 military personals died. The Boeing 757 hit the west side of the first floor the pentagon and massive fires ensued. It was estimated that there were close to 2,600 people working in the Pentagon near the impact site.
          Immediately after the crash, workers from other parts of the pentagon sprung to action, rescuing and retrieving victims. Then, the Arlington Country Fire Department came and ordered the impromptu rescuers out of the area because they weren’t properly equipped. They then requested Aid from the District of Columbia Fire/EMS Department. Soon afterward, Prince George’s Country Fire and EMS Department requested that all volunteer and care personnel report to their stations to fight. Luckily, the damage was minimal due to up-to-date and superior structure and the bravery of the firefighters.
Within a year, the pentagon was cleared and repaired. Next to the pentagon, an impromptu memorial was set up in order to pay respects. In 2008, the Pentagon Memorial was built and opened to the public.

   American Airlines Flight 77 departed Dulles International Airport bound for Los Angeles at 8:42. At 9:37, just a half an hour after the crash into the South Tower, American Airlines Flight 77 was hijacked and flew into the Pentagon in Virginia. Passengers used their cell phones and in-plane phones to contact their family members and authorities. The last transmission between air traffic control and pilot was made at approximately 8:50.
