Two more victims from the tragic day of September 11, 2001 have been identified as we come upon the 20th year since the attack.
New York City Office of Chief Medical Examiner has identified two more victims from the World Trade Center attack. One victim is Dorothy Morgan, of Hempstead, the second victim's name has not been released per a request from the family.
“Twenty years ago, we made a promise to the families of World Trade Center victims to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes to identify their loved ones, and with these two new identifications, we continue to fulfill that sacred obligation,” Dr. Barbara A. Sampson, Chief Medical Examiner of the City of New York, said in a statement. “No matter how much time passes since September 11, 2001, we will never forget, and we pledge to use all the tools at our disposal to make sure all those who were lost can be reunited with their families.”
According to CBS, about 40% of those who died in 9/11 remain unidentified. However the medical examiner's office says their new 'sequencing technology' “promises to result in more new identifications.”
Dorothy Morgan and the second victim are the 1,646th and 1,647th victims to be identified through this DNA analysis of unidentified remains.
