Piece of 9/11 Hijacked Plane Found in Manhattan

NEW YORK CITY (CNN)-

An aircraft part apparently from one of the airliners that hit the World Trade Center towers on September 11, 2001, has been found in Lower Manhattan, New York police said Friday.

Part of a landing gear was discovered wedged between two buildings near ground zero and “includes a clearly visible Boeing identification number,” police said in a news release. Police responded after surveyors working in the area called 911 to report they’d found “apparently damaged machinery,” the release said.

“The NYPD is securing the location as it would a crime scene,” police added.
