No human remains at 9/11 wing site

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

The New York City Medical Examiner's Office says sifting through debris at the site where a piece of a jet wing was discovered last week is now complete.

No potential human remains were found outside 51 Park Place in lower Manhattan.

The wing part is believed to belong to one of the planes that crashed into the Twin Towers on Sept. 11, 2001.

The part, a trailing edge flap actuation support structure, was found Wednesday wedged between two buildings, one of them a mosque site.

The NYPD removed the plane part using a pulley system to raise the jagged, 255- pound metal piece. It was loaded onto a truck headed to a Brooklyn police facility.

The debris stuck between the back of 51 Park Place and the rear of 50 Murray Street was considered a crime scene after the part's discovery.

Surveyors hired by the property owners of 51 Park Place, where an Islamic cultural center is planned, found the debris when they were checking out the back of the building.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
