12 DIE IN CAVE-IN
Tons of Earth and Bowlders Hurled Upor
Victims After Heavy Blast in Lex?
ington Avenue Tunnel.
LOWER LEVEL ROOF COLLAPSES
Office Building in Harlem Cracked by Second Lxplosior
?Morbid Crowds at 56th Street Fight Police
in Effort to See Bodies of
Two dynamite blasts in widely separated sections of the Lex?
ington avenue branch of the new subways, set off v/ithin a few min?
utes of each other early last evening, brought death and ruin in theii
Many laborers, twelve was the report, were crushed to death
in a cavein of the excavation at Lexington avenue and 56th street,
following a blast, and at 120th street and Lexington -avenue a sec?
ond blast in the tunnel destroyed the foundations of the building at
No. 1944 on that avenue, cracking the building from cellar to roof
and necessitating the ordering out of all the tenants.
Six of the men who met their death at Lexington avenue and
56th street were caught beneath a huge mass of rock, weighing
probably two hundred tons, and crushed so badly that identification
was impossible except by their badge numbers. The men never
had a chance to save themselves, as the great bowlder dropped sud?
denly from the tunnel roof and fell directly on the spot where they
had been working hand drills.
CROWDS AND CONFUSION AT SCENE.
The scene about the mouth of the excavation at 56th street was
a chaotic one. Hundreds of policemen, ambulance surgeons, priests,
members of the firm of the Bradley Construction Company, which
has charge of the tunnel work at this point, and officials of city
departments rushed here and there, giving orders, arguing and as?
sisting the injured to the ambulances.
Police reserves from four precincts had to be called out to help
preserve order among the thousands of persons who tried to jam
their way into close proximity to the scene of the accident. Fights
took place between the police and the morbidly curious, who were
determined to get a glimpse of the dead and injured. A great square,
taking in more than twenty city blocks, was formed about the mouth
of the excavation by the police. Nobody except those with official
business was permitted to pass this cordon.
Similar scenes, though in a smaller degree, took place about the
region of the second tunnel blast, in Harlrm. The reserves from
the East 126th street police station had hard work driving the
crowds back, and all surface car traffic on Lexington avenue, both
north and south bound, was tied up for hours.
CORONER ANGERS SUBWAY BUILDERS.
Conflicting statements were made by police. Fire Department
| officials, members of the Public Service Commission and the Coroner
regarding responsibility for the loss of life at Lexington avenue and
56th street. Coroner Holtzhauser aroused the ire of the Bradley
Construction Company's officers when he made the bald statement
that if the tunnel had been properly shored the accident would never
One report had it that the cave-in was the immediate result of
an extra heavy blast set off just before the rock and earth gave way.
Another version of the accident had it th3t the blasts had little to do
1 with the cave-in and that the accident occurred because of the dan
! gerous condition of the rockbed at that point.
