Her parents gave birth to her on October 14, 1954. But when she was five years old, she moved to New York with her mother.

Although Edna never graduated from high school and only completed her studies through eleventh grade, in her last years she worked towards a GED, which is equivalent to a high school diploma.

In various videos and images online, she can allegedly be seen alive in the hole created after American Airlines Flight 11 collided with the North Tower. These images and videos have become her iconic representations.

When the skyscraper collapsed, she was close to the survivors. They were all killed by the debris that crushed them.

One of the users commented, “Of all the pictures and memories from that day, I will always remember those of the trapped people who ended up hanging out of the windows and jumping.”

In the image captured by Richard Drew, the woman (dubbed Hole Woman) can be seen to have characteristics similar to Cintron’s physical attributes, including a thin body and long blonde hair.

According to NIST reports, the victim stayed in a room with a temperature of around 1000°C for almost an hour.

Although temperatures were not uniform across the area, several of those detained claimed to have fled to cooler locations, mainly where the fire was in contact with outside air.
