Surveillance Video of New York City Explosion

An explosion occurred at Chelsea, Manhattan, injuring at least 29 people on a Saturday night.

The explosion which happened at around 8:30 PM at the 23rd Street between Sixth and Seventh Avenues was said to be an international act, and is not related to terrorism.

A possible secondary device was located a few blocks away on 27th Street, between 6th Avenue and 7th Avenue, but was then removed by authorities.

Police said the device was to be detonated at the NYPD’s firing range in the Bronx.

According to ABC News, the mayor said the Chelsea explosion has no apparent connection to the explosive device that detonated in Seaside Park, New Jersey, Saturday morning. Nobody was injured in the New Jersey incident, which occurred at a time when a 5k run to benefit U.S. Marines and sailors was scheduled, but the race was delayed because so many runners had signed up.
