Morgan Kay Beamer’s father worked for Wilson Sporting Goods before he started working with Oracle Corporation. His job demanded that he travel up to four times a month to meet with clients. On September 11, he went onboard a United Airlines Flight 96 with other 43 passengers from Newark to San Francisco to meet with Sony Corporation representatives with the aim of returning on a red-eye flight at night. While onboard, the passengers found out that the flight had been hijacked by terrorists.
Together with some flight crew and passengers, they decided to take control of the plane back from the hijackers. With the situation, other passengers tried to place calls over to their loved ones to alert them of the situation at hand and Todd also placed a call to his family. However, the call was averted to the GTE airphone supervisor, Lisa Jefferson. Before his death, he recited the Lord’s prayer and Psalm 23 and placed a call to Lisa Jefferson requesting that she tell his family that he loves them if he doesn’t make it.
According to sources, after his call with Lisa, she heard him answer “Are you ready? Okay. Let’s roll.” Their plane which flew at 563 miles per hour crashed upside down into an empty field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, United States, with everyone on board dead. To date, Todd is remembered for his last words, “Let’s roll.”
