Identified 18 years on
AUTHORITIES have newly identified the remains of a 9/11 victim found at the World Trade Center.
The New York City medical examiners’ office said on Monday the man is the 1643rd person to be identified nearly 18 years after hijackers crashed planes into the trade centre’s twin towers in 2001.
The victim’s name, which is being withheld, was confirmed through DNA testing of remains recovered in 2013.
The medical examiner says about 40 per cent of the 2753 people reported missing are still unidentified.
