"My name is Robert Hawkins. It’s 6:42 AM on Saturday, May 23rd. Approximately seven hours ago, some… thing attacked the city. I don’t know what it is. If you found this tape, I mean if you’re watching this right now, then you probably know more about it than I do. Whatever it is, it k i l l e d my brother Jason Hawkins, it killed my best friend Hudson Platt and Marlena Diamond, and many many others. We’ve crashed into Central Park and we’ve taken shelter underneath this bridge. The military has begun bombing the creature and we’re caught in the middle."
