October 09, 2001

Huge cranes continued to dip into a mountain of smoldering rubble at the trade center disaster site, lifting several-ton sections of what were once support beams. The movement of debris released 100-foot-wide plumes of smoke from fires within the ruins. At least one body was seen being pulled from the ruins, draped in an American flag.

The number of people reported missing dropped yesterday to 4,815. There have been 417 confirmed deaths, including 366victims who have been identified.
