Explosion: 29 Injured in Chelsea, New York City, after a HUGE explosion occurred

Twenty-nine people are reportedly suffering injuries in Chelsea, New York shortly after an explosion occurred at 8:30 p.m. EST on Sept. 17. The “deafening” blast caused the lower windows of a 14-story residence to shatter, and could be heard several blocks away.


Another device, reportedly a pressure cooker rigged with wires, was later found in the same district.sending locals into absolute shock as sirens went off and screams were heard. Ambulances were seen zooming down the street, trying to help those who were hurt from the catastrophe.



The cause of the blast late on Saturday in Chelsea remains unclear. Mayor Bill de Blasio described it as "intentional" but said that there were no known links to terror.

New York's fire department said that of those injured, 24 were taken to hospital.
One received a puncture wound described as serious, while the rest suffered scrapes and bruises.



NYC's mayor's office told NBC News early Sunday that an object police described as a "possible secondary device" was found nearby on West 27th Street and had been removed.



The device was taken aboard a special containment vessel to the NYPD's range at Rodman's Neck in the Bronx. Law enforcement sources described the find as a pressure cooker with items attached, according to NBC News.    BBC/CNBC
