A 9/11 Victim Has Been Identified 16 Years After the Attacks

Almost 16 years after two hijacked jetliners flew into the World Trade Center's twin towers, the New York City medical examiner on Monday announced it identified the remains of a 9/11 victim. He is the 1,641 victim of the 2,753 killed at the lower Manhattan site that day to be identified; 40 percent of those killed have not had their remains identified.

This is the first new identification made by scientists since March 2015, in what has become a painstaking and ongoing effort to offer closure to families.

The man was the 1,641st person identified out of the 2,753 killed when terrorists flew hijacked jets into the twin towers on September 11, 2001.

Officials remain committed to using DNA testing to identify any of the remains that had been located.

The victim, a male whose name is being withheld at the request of his family, is the 1,641st person to be identified in the attacks that killed 2,753 people in total. Most of the new testing has pointed toward already-identified victims of the terror attacks. Conceivable stays of more than 20 casualties were recuperated.

Now and again, researchers have backpedaled to a similar bone section at least 10 times, trusting new innovation will give answers.

Nearly 3,000 individuals were slaughtered in NY, at the Pentagon and close Shanksville, Pennsylvania, in the assaults.
