New York Times Remembers Only New York LDS Victim

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- While as many as 17 possible LDS victims have been identified in the attacks on the World Trade Center, little is known about some of the victims. However, the New York Times gave further information on Ivhan Carpio recently in its continuing profiles of the more than 5,000 New York victims. Carpio was identified as the only LDS resident of the New York area who was killed in the attack.

Ivhan Luis Carpio Bautista, 24, had recently joined the LDS Church and was a member of the Richmond Hill District, which covers parts of Brooklyn and Queens, New York. Tuesday, September 11th was actually his day off his work at Windows on the World, the famous restaurant located on the 107th floor of One World Trade Center. It was also his birthday. But the Peruvian-native Carpio agreed to cover a co-worker's shift because he needed all the money he could get for his extended family in Peru. His cousin, Rita Tatiana Palacio, said, "He worked all the overtime he could. Too many people needed the money, including a niece whose school he paid for."

The cousin adds that things were going very well for Carpio. He had learned English during his two years in the US, found a steady job and had moved into his own apartment just a month before. On September 10th, he had learned that he was accepted by John Jay College of Criminal Justice, part of the City University of New York. He had been worried that the school wouldn't accept his more than two years of law school in Peru. "He was so excited, so happy," Ms. Palacio said. "I remember him saying how he was so lucky, that everything was going to be so good from now on."

Carpio also attended a singles ward in Manhattan, and the ward was to hold a memorial service for him this week.
