New Details Released In New York City Accident Involving University of Miami Student

New details have emerged after a University of Miami student was hurt in a explosive accident inside New York City’s Central Park earlier this month.

Investigators from the NYPD determined that the device was a combination of commercially available products sold to the general public. They wouldn’t go into further detail about the exact substances involved or any possible leads into where they were purchased or who made the device.

Connor Golden, a then 18-year-old student, traveled with several friends from his native Virginia, had part of his leg amputated following the July 3rd incident. Golden celebrated his 19th birthday this past Sunday.

The incident sparked a shutdown of the area near the scene, while officials figured out what took place. NYPD officers quickly ruled out terrorism, saying it appeared to be a homemade device left in the park.

A $10,000 reward is being offered for anyone with any information on the case.
