Another 9/11 victim identified

More than seven-and-a-half years after the September 11th terrorist attacks, the city medical examiner identified the remains of yet another victim Wednesday.

Manuel Emilio Mejia, 54, was a worker at the Windows on the World restaurant, which was situated on the top floors of the World Trade Center’s North Tower.

The medical examiner says the remains were found during the second phase of clean up and recovery, which began in January of 2006.

Currently, 1,624 victims’ remains have been identified, but more than 1,100 others have not been found or identified. [source]
