We owe some brave firefighter a big thank you for rescuing us from the site of yesterday’s manhole explosion at 9th and First. In this video posted by EV Grieve (who drew our attention to the 32 second mark, at which point we are dragged to safety in the strong arms of the FDNY), you can see the whole thing go down.
Dramatic! Luckily, we’ve come out of the incident (relatively) unscathed.
EV Grieve has more photos of the explosion and aftermath, which, fortunately, injured no one. Not even a red plastic Voice box.
