New York Tugboat Crash Claimed Three Crewmember's Lives

On March 12, 2016 a tugboat escorting a crane from Albany to Jersey City, collided with a stationary construction barge located near the Tappan Zee Bridge. The tugboat, named The Specialist, was manned by three crewmembers, all of whom perished in the incident. After hitting the barge, the tugboat capsized and sank to the bottom of the Hudson River.

East Village Explosion

Recently, a building in New York's East Village exploded, killing two and injuring dozens. Although investigations are still ongoing, authorities suspect that the cause of the accident resulted from an improperly tapped gas line. The proper gas and plumbing permits were not obtained for work to be done on that building, nor is it clear who was working on the gas lines at the time of the accident. However, Con Edison had been inspecting the building an hour prior to the explosion and found that the meter service was not ready for gas hook up. The general contractor who had been working on the building at the time of the explosion had recently been charged by the Manhattan DA's office with attempting to bribe a Building Inspector for violations on other properties he owned. In addition to the tragic deaths and injuries caused by the explosion, three buildings were reduced to rubble and 140 apartments were vacated due to safety concerns.
