NEW YORK CITY STEAM EXPLOSION

MANHATTAN, NY

1 Fatality and 500 Million in Damages

In July of 2007, a steam explosion occurred on the corner of this famous Manhattan intersection at East 41st and Lexington Ave.   The incident occurred during the “evening rush hour,” causing a massive geyser of hot steam and a 40-story-high shower of debris.  T.J. Russo Consultants was retained to provide expertise and manpower relating to the evidence extraction efforts of the incident.  A team of experts from our firm facilitated a 24-hour a day, two week long operation, and established a chain of custody for over 1,000 “asbestos contaminated” artifacts.  The largest evidence extraction of its kind.
