Friends and family said goodbye Wednesday to three of the eight victims killed in last week’s massive explosion in East Harlem.
Community and religious leaders held a moment of silence at 9:31 a.m. Wednesday to mark the passing of one week since the explosion.
The medical examiner said the seven victims died from either blunt trauma or smoke inhalation and classified their deaths as accidents. Results were still pending on the eighth victim.
It happened just after 1 a.m. at the intersection of 75th Street and 88th Avenue in Woodhaven.
