Remains of 9/11 victim identified 16 years after terror attacks

1641st person killed at the World Trade Center on 9/11 has been identified

Monday's announcement marks the first time since March 2015 that remains of a September 11 World Trade Center victim have been identified.

The Medical Examiner's office used DNA testing on remains found in the devastation to identify the man.

Officials remain committed to using DNA testing to identify any of the remains that had been located.

A victim of the 9/11 terror attack has been identified in New York City, 16 years after the horrific events which shocked the world. The department was previously limited by current technology in its ability to test the samples.

The office said it now knows the name of the 1,641st victim to be identified of the 2,753 killed at the towers.

The efforts haven't been simple.

The process involves pulverising the fragments of remains to extract DNA, then comparing it to the collection of genetic material from victims or their relatives.

Few full bodies were recovered after the giant skyscrapers burned and collapsed - and the effects of heat, bacteria and chemicals have made it hard to analyse remains.

In some cases, scientists have re-examined the same bone fragment 10 or more times - hopeful that advancements in technology will provide answers.

Two planes crashed in New York City that day, plus one at the Pentagon in Virginia and another in Pennsylvania, claiming almost 3,000 lives and injuring thousands more.
