-More cops have died from 9/11-related illnesses than on the scene at Ground Zero-May 07, 2014More police officers have now died as a result of illnesses blamed on the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks than the number of cops killed during the actual event as the tragedy unfolded 12-and-a-half years ago.On Tuesday this week, 20 new names were added to the New York State Police Officers' Memorial in Albany, NY, including 13 individuals who died in recent years due to 9/11-related illnesses. The Associated Press reported that authorities attribute those 13 deaths to cancers caused by rescue and recovery efforts in Lower Manhattan after the World Trade Center collapsed more than a decade ago.All told, the memorial in the New York state capital now contains the names of 71 officers who died due to 9/11-related illnesses. The actual terrorist attack itself claimed the lives of 60 cops, and nearly 3,000 civilians."I live near the World Trade Center. I inhaled the toxic smoke that permeated every square inch of lower Manhattan," New York state Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver said at Tuesday’s ceremony, the AP reported. "I know how nobly and heroically the NYPD carried out their duties on that tragic September day and the terrible days that followed."A quarter of the names added to the memorial this week, the Troy Record reported, were of cops killed in line-of-duty injuries suffered on the job. The majority of the new names, however, are of police officers who persevered for years after the 9/11 attacks while living with fatal illnesses attributed to the debris at Ground Zero.“We cannot have a safe state without the sacrifice of our police officers,” Lieutenant Governor Robert Duffy said at the ceremony, according to the Record.A total of 1,360 officers from New York state law enforcement agencies have their names on the memorial in Albany, which reads: “It doesn’t matter from which department they came, the feeling of loss is experienced the same.” With regards to the 13 new names added as a result of 9/11-related illnesses, a dozen were members of the New York City Police Department and one was a cop for law enforcement in Peekskill, NY.
