More Bodies Discovered in Rubble of New York City Explosion

Hopes of finding more survivors from a deadly building explosion in New York City's Harlem neighborhood are fading.

Seven people are confirmed dead from Wednesday's massive blast. Rescue crews searched through the rubble to locate nine other people who are still missing after a gas leak caused an explosion that leveled two apartment buildings. At least 63 people were injured.

The blast spread debris over several blocks and a nearby commuter rail line, suspending train service in and out of Grand Central Station for much of the Wednesday.

Residents in a nearby building called officials at energy company Consolidated Edison to report the smell of natural gas minutes before the explosion.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio called the incident "a tragedy of the worst kind" because it happened with no time to save people.
