I am in North Carolina and promised myself I wouldn’t check the computer or blog at all but you know how it is. I came across this horrible news this morning and I am hoping that it isn’t anyone I know.
Police say the car careened through a fence and plunged into the water, off of Apollo Street in the Greenpoint section of Brooklyn, at around 3:30 a.m.
Eyewitness News has learned one man, in his 20s, was pulled from the creek, screaming that people were still trapped below. After hours of searching, a second person was reportedly discovered dead in the water.
It’s a horrible death to drown but drowning in the disgusting waters of the Newtown Creek is even worse.
