1,120 NYC 9/11 Victims Still Not Recovered 2/29/12
With the news coverage these past 24 hours on the mishandling of 9/11 victim remains at Dover Air Force Base, it is important to note that over 10 years after the attacks many families have yet to receive even partial remains of their loved one. The New York City Chief Medical Examiner’s Office announced the most recent victim identification on February 10, 2012; that of a 42-year-old female. Over 2,750 people were reported missing in the World Trade Center attacks. This latest identification brought the number of victims to have had some portion of their remains identified to 1,633. 1,120 victims have not had any remains recovered. Reports of victims being identified in New York City are largely reported only in the New York City area. I offer this brief post simply to let the rest of the world know that 1,120 families still have not had their loved one returned to them.
PLEASE share this post so that others may know of the continuing tragedy of 9/11. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this.
