NY identifies remains of 9/11 victim

A victim of the 9/11 terror attacks on the World Trade Center has been identified nearly 16 later, due to new advances in DNA technology.

The man, whose identity and address are being kept confidential at the request of his family, was identified through retesting of DNA from remains recovered in 2001, according to a spokeswoman for the New York City medical examiner's office.

Monday's announcement marks the first time since March 2015 that a September 11 World Trade Center victim has been positively confirmed.

New, more sensitive DNA technology was deployed earlier this year and helped make the latest identification after earlier testing produced no results, the medical examiner's office said. The medical examiner was previously limited by technology in its ability to test the samples.

Doctors has been unable to identify 1,112 people who died at the World Trade Center.

More than 1,100 of them have either not been identified, or were never found.

Investigators were unable to recover scores of bodies trapped in the rubble, and the effects of heat and chemicals like jet fuel have further complicated the identification process.

It's thought that a total of 2,996 lost their lives that day in NY as well as at the Pentagon in Virginia and a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, while thousands more were injured.
