The more than 200 people with direct ties to Massachusetts who died on Sept. 11, 2001 have been remembered as the state joins the nation in marking the 11th anniversary of the terrorist attacks. The names of the victims were read by Gov. Deval Patrick, Lt. Gov. Timothy Murray and family members during a ceremony outside the Statehouse on Tuesday. A wreath was placed earlier at the state’s 9/11 memorial in the Boston Public Garden.

Murray presented the annual Madeline Amy Sweeney Award for Civilian Bravery to Paul Antonini of Wakefield, who in April rushed into a burning apartment building in East Boston to alert people inside. All 30 residents escaped safely. Sweeney was a flight attendant on one of the two planes that were hijacked from Logan International Airport and flown into the World Trade Center.
