Teen Loses Foot After Stepping On Explosive in Central Park

  • Published: 05 July 2016
  • A man suffered serious injuries due to an explosion in New York's Central Park, according to multiple reports. The victim's leg was injured while he climbed a rock and stepped on something that "exploded" near the corner of 5th Avenue and 68th Street. Authorities closed off a section of Central Park near the Central Park Zoo as they work to verify the cause of the accident. Police are pointing to a fireworks mishap as the likely cause, but investigators have not yet revealed the official cause.

    2019 update: No one has claimed responsibility and the cops have no suspects. However, the victim has moved on and is about to graduate.

          ''we have no evidence to suggest this bag was placed intentionally to harm someone...''

          Correct me if I'm wrong, but exploding plastic bags don't place themselves anywhere do they?

                      A gang member probably hid his explosive until this happened. No terrorist act will aim for just one man, will be so far from main pedestrian stream, and it will be hidden around a rock.
