New York: The first name of one of the
victims of the 9/11 attack was misspelled on the memorial in
Lower Manhattan, a spokesman for the memorial said.

The victim, Jeffrey Schreier, was an employee at Cantor
Fitzgerald, a company that lost 658 people that day.

When Schreier`s name was transcribed for the memorial,
two letters were transposed, making his first name read
"Jeffery" on the bronze parapets, said the spokesman, Michael
Frazier.

"We are extremely sorry for the pain this mistake has
caused Jeffrey’s family," Frazier was quoted as saying by The
New York Times.

"As soon as we found out about this error, we began
working on how to make it right, and we`re engaged with our
fabricators, contractors and the architect to do so."

No other misspellings have been discovered, the report
said.

For the first time since the terror attack on the World
Trade Center, the general public was allowed back onto
the site under airport-style security from Monday.
The nearly 3,000 names of the men, women, and children
killed in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 and
February 26, 1993 are inscribed in bronze on parapets
surrounding the twin Memorial pools.
