Workers sifting materials from a ground zero access road have discovered nine potential human remains, the medical examiner's office said Friday.

The discovery on Thursday followed Wednesday's news that 27 human remains had been recovered at the Brooklyn "sifting site," said spokeswoman Ellen Borakove.

Since last week, the medical examiner's office has positively identified the remains of six people, including an Australian and a New Yorker names were released with their families' permission.

Alberto Dominguez, 66, a baggage handler for Qantas Airways in Sydney, Australia, was visiting the U.S. and died aboard American Airlines Flight 11.

New Yorker Carol Ann LaPlante, 59, died while working at Marsh & McLennan Cos. Inc. in the World Trade Center.

Their remains had been found during the initial recovery efforts and were identified through DNA analysis.

Earlier this month, the medical examiner's office said that some 1,100 victims still do not have identifiable remains.
