Fatal rush-hour explosion in New York raises spectre of 9/11

July 19, 2007

“One person has died and more than 20 have been injured from a steam-pipe explosion in midtown Manhattan, the New York Times has reported.

The explosion, believed to be caused by cold water in the 24-inch pipe, sparked panic among commuters as dozens of New York City police and fire crews rushed to the destroyed area near Grand Central Station.”

Doesn’t it remind you of that film based in L.A. where lava erupts through bubbling mud pools? But this is for real.

Any on-the-scene additions from any of my readers?

Read the full story here and take a look at loads more photos and video footage.
