Portion of one of the planes destroyed on 9/11 possibly found in NYC
New York City (WSYR-TV) -- A portion of landing gear, apparently from one of the planes that was destroyed on 9/11, was found wedged between the rear of building in lower Manhattan on Wednesday.
New York City Police Department Deputy Commissioner Paul J. Brown told ABC News that the department is securing the location as a crime scene, taking pictures and restricting access until the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner completes its health and safety evaluation protocol.
After the Chief Medical Examiner’s Office has completed its investigation, Brown says a decision will be about whether or not to sift the soil for possible human remains.
The aircraft part -- which has a clearly visible Boeing identification number -- will not be removed until the process is completed, Brown continued.
The aircraft piece was discovered after surveyors hired by the property owner were inspecting the rear of the building on Wednesday.
