    Explosion in East Harlem NYC


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     seamuspk was on the M116 bus when the explosion happened. "The bus was less than 50ft from where the explosion occurred," he said. "I shot the video immediately after the explosion this morning." He told us that the bus was engulfed in smoke, ash and debris. "The bus driver drove away from the scene and let us off down the road," he said. The bus was mostly unaffected by the explosion. "Debri seemed to hit the side, but the windows remained intact," he said.

    I was on the M116 MTA bus a matter of feet from the massive explosion in NYC. Video begins (on the bus) about 30 seconds after the explosion and continues for a few minutes, showing the scene immediately following the blast.
