WATCH: (Scroll Down) New Yorkers ran for cover on Friday as manhole covers rained down on a busy city street at lunch time when three manholes exploded into a fiery flame just feet from each other.
The explosions all rocked the corner of 45th and 9th Avenue on Manhattan’s West Side around noon.
Dancer Lea Debressey, on her way to dance class at Broadway Dance Center, whipped out her cellphone to capture a video.
“It was really scary. It was shocking, this explosion,” Lea Debressey, took video. “It was like fireworks that don’t work, that just explode,” her friend Thibault Delaunay, her friend also told PIX 11.
A second explosion blew out a fifth floor window at the Film Center building and the third manhole blowout sent a metal cover over 15 feet into the air, where it then fell and knocked out part of a fire hydrant.
No one was hurt during the triple manhole cover explosion. ‘It’s a miracle no one got hurt. It could have been a lot worse,’ said Ritchie Christian, who was working nearby when he heard the deafening explosions.
