Statement from Congressman Engel on the Explosion at JFK high School

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Eliot Engel (NY-16) issued the following statement regarding tonight's explosion at John F. Kennedy High School in the Bronx:

Our thoughts and prayers are with the three people injured in tonight's terrible accident at John F. Kennedy High School. As frightening and horrific as this explosion was, the fact that we are only a few short weeks away from students returning to the campus for the school year makes the incident even more terrifying. I thank the brave men and women in our first-responder units for their bravery in rushing to the school to help, as well as the Con Ed crews who quickly descended on the scene to investigate the situation.
