The bodies of all eight people reported missing after a deadly gas explosion destroyed two buildings have been recovered, the city fire commissioner said Friday, but workers are treating the scene as a rescue operation in case there are unknown survivors in the rubble.
Rescue workers using dogs and thermal-detection gear to search rubble for more victims of a gas explosion found an eighth body on Thursday while investigators tried to pinpoint the leak and determine whether it had anything to do with the city's aging gas and water mains, some from the 1800s.
A National Transportation Safety Board official says there are no obvious ruptures or punctures in a gas main and distribution pipe at the East Harlem explosion site.
Federal aviation officials were preparing to issue an order Tuesday that calls for emergency inspections on 80 U.S.-registered Boeing 737 jetliners with histories similar to a Southwest Airlines jet that had been pressurized and depressurized 39,000 times before a 5-foot-long hole opened in its fuselage.
Three more Southwest Airlines jetliners have small, subsurface cracks that are similar to the cracks suspected of playing a role in the fuselage tear of a Boeing 737-300, causing the aircraft to lose pressure and forcing a frightening emergency landing, officials said.
Two days after a barge crashed into a stopped tourist boat, leaving two Hungarian tourists missing, authorities retrieved two bodies from the Delaware River, including a girl identified as one of the victims.
NTSB officials also hoped to conduct witness interviews, he said.
The NTSB's Sumwalt said Fox reported that he tried to sound his boat's air horn when the barge was less than 400 yards away.
