NEW YORK Apr 3, 2007 (AP)— Advanced DNA technology has helped identify two more Sept. 11 victims whose remains were found shortly after the terrorist attacks in 2001, the medical examiners office said.
The new identifications were made in the past week by retesting the remains, a spokeswoman for the chief medical examiner said Monday.
NEW YORK - One of the two Sept. 11 victims just identified through advanced DNA technology was a firefighter whose remains were recovered from the World Trade Center site in 2001, the fire department said in a letter.
The four-paragraph letter, sent last week to the families of the 128 Fire Department of New York victims whose remains were never identified, stressed the identification was unrelated to the recent discovery of remains from ground zero and the surrounding area.
