Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: Twin Towers   Manhattan, NY   USA   Tue. Sep. 11, 2001
Summary: Special Investigator Diane DiGiacomo died as the result of cancer that developed following prolonged exposure to toxic materials while conducting search and rescue operations after the terrorist attacks in New York City on September 11th, 2001.

Investigator DiGiacomo and other agents from the ASPCA's Humane Law Enforcement division were assigned to search for abandoned animals in homes and apartments in restricted area around the World Trade Center site that had been evacuated. Investigator DiGiacomo spent three months in the immediate area around Ground Zero participating in the operation and other recovery tasks.

She developed a cancer that was directly attributed to her exposure to the toxic air in the area.

Special Investigator DiGiacomo was one of the officers regularly profiled on the reality television show 'Animal Precinct.'

Disposition: ED NOTE: as of 11/30/2015, Congress has allowed funding legislation to lapse which would assist our first responders, who worked the disaster area for some time after 911. Many of those workers have since died from toxic air and various medical problems directly attibuted to those working conditions, which develop later.

This abandonment of our Police, Fire & Medical responders is disgraceful and sends a clear message for future disaster workers. Your government only cares now, not later.
