NBC – Police released dashcam video of a gas explosion that leveled an Ocean County, New Jersey, home, injured 15 people, and shook homes in every direction Tuesday morning, including one of a young mother.
“My windows blew out of my house, and I dropped, and I covered my daughter, because she was next to me,” said Stafford Township resident Melissa Lewis. “I stood up, and I heard them screaming outside, and there were people being taken to the ambulance.”
Police received the initial call for an odor inspection in the Cedar Run neighborhood of the township near U.S. Route 9 around 8:55 a.m., about an hour and a half before the blast occurred, according to Stafford Township Police Capt. Tom Dellane.
