Times Square manhole blast sends crowds running for their lives

The Metro says a manhole cover explosion in New York City’s Times Square sent people running for their lives Sunday night.

The boom, which echoed for blocks in the tourist-filled area, had many in a panic, running away from the blast. It happened around 6.45 pm on West 43rd Street near Seventh Avenue.

The New York City Fire Department said in statements that firefighters responding to the scene just before found three manholes on fire on West 43rd and Seventh Avenue, near Times Square’s Hard Rock Cafe.

Crews also discovered elevated carbon monoxide levels on that same block, including inside an office building.

Today’s news summary – Paper Talk

Wednesday’s front pages focus heavily on President Joe Biden’s decision to not extend the 31 August withdrawal date of US troops in Afghanistan – despite PM Boris Johnson and other world leaders pleas during a G7 meeting on the Afghanistan crisis.

The papers say it is now the last chance to escape the Taliban, with some describing the situation as a “failure” and slamming President Biden for seemingly backing Trump’s “America first” policy. 

Elsewhere, the papers carry front-page tributes to Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts – who has died at the age of 80.
