    College student ‘mutilated’ after Central Park explosion

    Connor Golden, 18, was climbing on rocks near east 60th Street and Fifth Avenue with his two buddies — Thomas Hinds, 20, and Matthew Stabile, 18 — when he stepped on the object at around 11 a.m., according to police.

    “I was walking in front of him and suddenly heard this extremely loud explosion directly behind me. When I turned around, I saw Connor lying there, his foot completely gone. It was insane. He was moaning and saying, ‘Get help.’ ”

    John Murphy, a Connecticut resident who is also in town visiting for the holiday, said Hinds and Stabile freaked out when they realized the extent of Golden’s injuries.

    “The friends were just in shock,” he said. “He was severely injured. His left leg was severely damaged, all bone and muscle.”

    “It’s ridiculous. They’ve been asking me questions for two hours,” he said. “They want us to admit that we were playing with fireworks, but we really weren’t. We didn’t have anything on us explosive at all. But I know how it goes. If it was just us f–king around with fireworks, it would be a lot easier for them. But it’s not. And that’s actually really scary. Why would we do that?!”

    The explosive appeared to have been in the area more than a day, according to Lt. Mark Torre, the commanding officer of the NYPD’s Bomb Squad said. He ruled out authorities’ initial suspicion of a self-inflicted fireworks mishap. The FBI took over investigation of the case, a source said.

    Probably, but it could've been set by someone else or something. Also unfortunate username since he just lost his foot.

    not necessarily, could it be fireworks that didn't detonate properly?

    I don't buy that because I've never heard of a firework exploding because of somebody stepping on it.

    Plus people don't just go into central park to shoot off fireworks. There would've been reports of loud bangs the day before, but I'm guessing there wasn't any...if people were lighting fireworks off.

    Weird case. I almost feel like some psycho is experimenting with planting explosives in public places.
