    Blast in Central Park near Elie Wiesel’s funeral severs man’s leg

    Blast in Central Park near Elie Wiesel’s funeral severs man’s leg


    An explosion near the site of Elie Wiesel’s funeral Sunday left one man with a severed leg or foot, according to authorities.

    It wasn’t immediately clear if the blast — at E. 68th St. and Fifth Ave. — was related to the funeral for the Pulitzer Prize winning Holocaust survivor on E. 62nd St.

    Fire officials called it “an amputation incident.”

    He was taken to Bellevue Hospital for treatment.

    “We don’t know what happened. There was a small explosion, then dust,” said a man, identifying himself as one of the victim’s friends.

    An eyewitness told CBS News that the victim was climbing a rock and stepped on something that “exploded.”

    Interesting story especially given the deceased persons history, religion and activism. Too much of a coincidence I say. Hope they put the Feds on this because there might be more to this then 'stepping on a 4th of July firework'. That just doesn't pass the smell test.

      Bets on religion of peace involvement?

        I'm betting even money. But we might never know, this might be one of the times its swept under the carpet for obvious liberal (state and federal) political reasons.

                  I was talking about the guy in the casket and how it's possible he could have brought out nuts or Islamic assholes.

                      CNN is now reporting that this incident was more "sinister" then first reported and the explosive was homemade. A police news conference is starting in about 1/2 hour.

                        The police believe someone made it but was not intending to hurt or cause harm. They say the 3 kids involved are not maker of the device which was in a paper bag. one of the most unbelievable freak accidents I have heard of.

                          Curious to hear the names of these 3 "kids".

                            “It is not unusual for the public to make or try to create homemade fireworks around the Fourth of July,” explained Lt. Mark Torre, head of the NYPD Bomb Squad. “This is a time of a year where typically we will see a lot of experimentation — explosive experimenters, if you will. Their goal is to make a loud noise, maybe make a flash. They like to make noise and sort of play with fireworks, and it’s even better if they can make their own.”


                            If I ever get sued over a slip and fall, I want THIS guy explaining the word "accident" at my hearing.

                              I read it was a homemade bomb.

                              "Mark Torre, commanding officer of the NYPD bomb squad, added that investigators are leaning toward considering this the work of an explosive "hobbyist," an amateur or someone who knows chemistry."
