Yes, let's get the elephant out of the way. This is not EDM related. If you have an issue with that, then oh well. This article is specifically to help spread the word of this tragic event to those who may know individuals in the area.
An apparent terror attack took place in lower Manhattan earlier today. A truck which was rented from Home Depot ran down several cyclists and civilians on a bike path. The Daily Mail UK reported that the man driving the truck screamed ‘Allahu Akbar' while driving down a bike path, crushing several along the way. The report of this phrase has helped start speculation that this attack was carried out by an Islamic extremist.
The man driving the truck apparently got out after crashing it into a school and bus and was shot by police after brandishing a fake weapon. Eight have been confirmed dead, while several others including the perpetrator are still in critical condition. If you have loved ones in the area please check in. This is all the information we have so far.
