Long Island, NY (August 30, 2021) – An explosion incident reported in the Long Island area on Thursday morning sent two people to area hospitals with injuries. At around 11 a.m., on August 19, emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at an explosion on Bayview Avenue.

Reports from local authorities show that a boat explosion occurred at a driveway located at a home on Bayview Avenue during the morning hours. The incident prompted emergency crews to close off the roadway for an extended time.

Two people were injured as a result of the explosion. One man was transported via helicopter to Stony Brook University Hospital Medical Center. The second victim was transported via ambulance to Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center in West Islip. At this time, the circumstances surrounding the explosion are under investigation by the Suffolk Arson Section detectives. 

Our thoughts are with the victims injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.

Explosion Incidents in Long Island, New York

Explosions throughout the United States have a devastating impact on families. In some cases, material losses are overwhelming. Families who lose their homes, all their possessions, and essentially their livelihoods are forced to start over. As if the loss of homes and possessions were not enough, many people are harmed in these unexpected incidents. In far too many cases, victims suffer life-threatening injuries due to defective appliances, faulty wiring, and various other reasons. Although we would like to think that explosions are rare, they happen fairly often and have a life-changing impact on those involved.
