7 Now Confirmed Dead In Harlem Gas Explosion

7 Dead From East Harlem Building Explosion As More Bodies Are Found
What a nightmare. As a child, Mrs. Firstandcourt witnessed a similar explosion that tore the entire facade off a neighboring building and she still talks about it.
Four more bodies were recovered from the debris of two buildings that exploded from a gas leak in East Harlem on Wednesday. Crews have been using special equipment and backhoes to sift through the remains of the buildings through the night. According to WCBS 2, "Three victims were found sometime between midnight Wednesday and early Thursday morning. A fourth victim was found a few hours later."
My thoughts are with the victims, families and neighbors . . . and also on our aging infrastructure.
