Twitter

Five of the men who lost their lives were among a group of 10 friends from Argentina who were visiting the U.S. to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their graduation from a technical high school in Rosario, Argentina's third largest city.

Argentine nationals were among the eight people killed in the NY truck attack today, the foreign ministry said, as its consulate works with local authorities to identify the victims.

The only New Yorker killed in the attack was 23-year-old Nicholas Cleves, a software engineer and web developer who lived in Manhattan's Greenwich Village.

Ornee Pagnucco, the 18-year-old daughter of victim Alejandro Pagnucco, spoke to the Post about her father's "dream" to visit New York City and said of her family's loss, "We're shattered". The victims had all graduated from the Instituto Politécnico Superior in Rosario, a city northwest of Buenos Aires, according to an official in Rosario.

New Jersey native Darren Drake, 32, was a project manager for Moody's Investors Service at the World Trade Center and was getting his second master's degree.

"He had everything going for him", his father, Jimmy Drake, said through tears.

- The five Argentine men were all from the city of Rosario. They were celebrating the 30th anniversary of their graduation from a high school there. "We have to find out what happened here", de Blasio said on CNN Wednesday morning.

In Rosario, there was a minute of silence at the polytechnic high school the victims attended.
