At least 7 confirmed dead, several still missing as rescuers continue search for survivors after massive gas explosion levels two buildings


MFIR RADIO MEDIA

The death toll from the East Harlem explosion rose to 7 Thursday as workers continued the grim work of searching through the wreckage. 

The body was found at 7:12 a.m. in the rubble of two five-story buildings on Park Ave., an NYPD spokesman said. Police had not yet identified the body. 

Previously, authorities had said four women and two men had died in the explosion that also left more than 50 injured. 

The blast at 9:31 a.m. Wednesday occurred with barely any warning — Con Edison had received a complaint of an odor of gas in the area only 18 minutes before the buildings were leveled.

“I can only imagine knowing that at any moment you might find a body, how difficult that is,” de Blasio said. “I admire the work you guys do. I really do. It’s not easy. Thank God you do.”

Firefighters remove a body of one of the victims buried under the rubble.
