Woman A Block Away Suing Over NYC Apartment Building Explosion
Posted March 18th, 2014 @ 8:48am

NEW YORK (AP) _ A New York City woman has sued Con Edison over the explosion that leveled two apartment buildings last week. 

The New York Post reports that 46-year-old Michelle Nelson of Harlem filed the civil suit Monday, becoming the first to sue over the deadly blast. 

 Nelson's lawsuit says she sustained ``severe and permanent injuries'' when the explosion caused her to fall in her apartment more than a block away.

 The lawsuit names Con Edison and the owner of 1646 Park Ave., one of the collapsed buildings. 

It says they neglected their ``duty to keep ... the premises in a safe, proper and secure manner.''

 

Con Ed says it has not seen the lawsuit and could not comment. The owner of 1646 didn't immediately return calls seeking comment
