New York medical examiners have identified a victim of the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks nearly 16 years ago. The victim, whose name has been been withheld at the family's request, is the first identification made since March 2015, according to USA Today.
According to the medical examiner's office, the victim was identified using new DNA technology. Previous testing of the remains recovered from Ground Zero yielded no results.
The al-Qaeda linked attacks in which four planes crashed into two of New York's iconic skyscrapers, the Pentagon, and a field in Pennsylvania, led to the deaths of approximately 3,000. Forty percent of the victims have yet to be identified.
