People rise against Ceausescu. After the Ceausescu couple has fled by helicopter around noon, protestors fill the square which originally was guarded by tanks. They aim at the Communist Party Central Committee building and enter it. A protester who was arrested and beaten up the day before by security forces tells about his ordeals.<br />
