A pile of debris remains at the site of a building explosion in the East Village neighborhood of New York, Friday, March 27, 2015.

New York police say a second body has been found at the site where a Manhattan building collapsed three days ago after an apparent gas explosion.

Both of the dead were found amid the building rubble on Sunday.

Authorities had been looking for two missing men, both believed to have been inside a ground floor sushi restaurant at the time of the explosion.

Mayor Bill de Blasio says someone may have improperly tapped a gas line before the Thursday explosion that injured 22 people, four of them critically.
