A massive explosion followed by a fire at a pair of apartment buildings in upper Manhattan on Wednesday has left two people dead and at least 22 injured, officials say.

Two of the injured are hospitalized with life-threatening injuries, according to FDNY. Five others are in serious condition, but with non-life-threatening injuries, the fire department said. Fifteen others suffered minor injuries.

Rescuers are currently combing through bricks by hand in an effort to locate other possible victims. More than a dozen people are reportedly unaccounted for.

“There are a number of people missing,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said at a news conference. “I emphasize that those who are missing could well be safe in another location and just not contacted yet or reachable yet.”

The FDNY said it received a call shortly after 9:30 a.m. reporting a large explosion in the five-story apartment building on Park Avenue near 116th Street in East Harlem.


The blast shattered windows and caused walls to crumble several blocks away. Residents reported they feared it was a terrorist attack. One man was so scared he rushed out of his home wearing nothing but his underwear.

Reports state the blast was caused by a gas leak. Could this be the work of terrorists, or just an ordinary accident?

Nope...not terrorists...just a gas leak. A big one at that. Clearly.

You might as well just say he came out with nothing....my guess is those underwear were due for a change.

I'm going to go with accident. II feel bad for those people, but accidents like this happen all the time.

It also took place in Harlem, if I remember correctly, which, despite what they call gentrification, is still pretty run down and ghetto in a lot of places. It's likely that it was merely an accident waiting to happen.

Finally someone posted this event

Although, its just a gas leak, nothing to see here... RIP to the 2 killed (unless its a conspiracy over who died?)
