Bodies of NYC Officers Found in WTC Rubble

February 11, 2002  | 

The bodies of six Port Authority police officers were found early Saturday morning in the World Trade Center ruins near the remains of a woman they apparently were trying to rescue. The bodies of the officers were found in the lobby of the second tower to collapse, 1 World Trade Center, suggesting they probably already had been ordered to evacuate. Next to the officers, recovery crews found an obese woman still strapped into a rescue chair. The six officers were Capt. Kathy Mazza of South Farmingdale, New York; Lt. Robert Cirri of Nutley, New Jersey; Chief James Romito of Westwood, New Jersey; and officers James Parham of Jackson Heights, Queens, Stephen Huczko of Hampton, New Jersey, and Paul Laszczynski of Paramus, New Jersey. Five of the officers were uncovered shortly after 4 a.m. on Saturday, after an earth-moving machine exposed part of one of their blue uniforms. Laszczynski was found a couple hours later, a Port Authority spokesman said. The woman in the chair has not yet been identified.
