Identifying 9/11 Victims 10 Years On

As of August 2011, 1,631 victims of the September 11, 2001 attacks have been identified, while 1,122 (41%) of the victims remained unidentified. The remains are being held in storage in Memorial Park, outside the New York City Medical Examiner's facilities. It is expected that the remains will be moved in 2013 to a repository behind a wall at the 9/11 museum. As of July 2011, a team of scientists at the Office of Chief Medical Examiner continues to try to identify remains, in the hope that improved technology will allow them to identify other victims.

In this video David Common explains how new science is being used to help some families find closure.
