NEW YORK (AP) — A seventh person has been confirmed killed by an explosion that flattened two New York City apartment buildings.
Fire Department spokesman Danny Glover said Thursday that a seventh body had been found in the rubble. Police say the victim, recovered around 7:15 a.m., was an adult male.
Three bodies were found Wednesday and three more overnight.
A gas leak triggered the explosion Wednesday morning on Park Avenue and 116th Street in East Harlem. The blast also injured more than 60 people, including at least three children.
