BREAKING: Man seriously injured in explosion after stepping on device in Central Park

Eyewitnesses said three men were climbing a rock structure in the park when the explosion went off, with one of them suffering serious leg injuries.

Paramedics have said that the victim is facing a “possible amputation”.

The area was cordoned off and a sniffer dog sent into the area to search for explosives.

Police said the blast was probably caused by fireworks, given that it took place during the Fourth of July weekend.

Fireworks? Preposterous! Fireworks are illegal in NYC!

    Gee, I wonder what the names of those “three men” would be.

      So now I know where Omar Khadr is.

      Ever since Omar was caught back in February using his iPhone to contact Al-Qaeda members that he met in GITMO, the CBC and Omar’s brain dead useful-idiot Lawyer have gone silent as has Justin Trudeau and his Liberal’s that help free him.

        Thanks for the info.
        I’m going to file it under I told you so, Liberals.

          Ezra on the The Rebel did a special about this and Khadr’s lawyer refuse to respond to the request to know if going back to terrorism didn’t violate his bail conditions .

          Not a word from the CBC or STAR .

          Wasn’t that odd for the CBC and STAR to never cover Omar Khard when Chretien was in power , nor when Paul Martin was PM…..but as soon a Harper became PM they demanded Omar be released from GITMO as a Canadian being held by those big bad Americans .

          Gotta love CUPE with their Jew-hatred and pro-hamas support.

            Stewart and Colbert were edgy comics until Obama was elected.
            It took a while for the wait a minute moment when I realized they were just liberal hacks.
            Won’t get fooled again.

            Guys like that are there to shore up the rube goldberg machine of progressia. It’s sorta kinda worked for way too long.

        I wondered why we hadn’t yet heard about him getting the Order of Canada from Trudope.

      IED’s to celebrate Eid?

  • ntt1

    some cultures pursue fun by stuffing enraged weasels down their plus fours , others celebrate ramadan by stuffing IEDs down their loincloths or whatever, in both cases light rock scrambling is ill advised.

  • Dana Garcia

    IEDs are a problem in Central Park now? Seriously?

  • Rosenmops

    Don’t worry, it was just “explosive hobbyists”.

    Hi all

    I don’t think the boys involved were terrorists They strike me as typical college guys and one sadly stepped on a homemade firecracker
    Here’s the NY post’s take on the explosion

    I’m inclined to think that this is a tragic accident BUT now the scumbags have an idea of how to sow panic. Now parks will be the next soft target of opportunity

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      Come again.

      “A homemade firecracker” you say, no you are surely jesting. I know firecrackers of all sorts, since my youth happened before all the bans on firecrackers. Yes, there were some fireworks that could injure you, if you were careless, but nothing to compare with this.

        I’m being prudent as I really don’the know what to make of the explosive. Deliberately planted that’s logical but for now I’ll wait and listen to the updates. I’m sure I’ll be quite wrong and it was a deliberate terrorist attack but I refuse to be goaded by sentiment
