Mega City Mall Explosion Costs two Lives

Posted at 11:07 am under Uncategorized

An explosion in the food court at the Mega City Mall happened today at 9:50 am. The cause of the explosion is yet unknown but Sgt. Fulsang released a statement stating it occurred in the food court.

Morningside Student and Starbucks employee says, “At first I thought something fell in the back room but it wasn’t until I saw the people running I knew something was wrong.”

The perp is still unknown and there has not been any proof to it being a terrorist attach. There was security footage at the scene but it is under investigation as of now. Until they are done with the investigation the mall will be closed, “possibly until the end of next week” says Sgt. Fulsang.

There were 2 fatalities, male and female, in the explosion, less than a 100 mall shoppers were injured, and a 12-year-old child is missing. The names of the deceased have yet to be released until the families are contacted and authorities have issued a search for the missing child.

A retired fireman was at the scene and her former training helped her spring into action to try and help out as much as she could until law enforcement showed up. The former fireman stated “I helped out as much as I could, it brought me back to the old days in the force but I did my time and I’m just glad I was there to help out.”

Mega City Mall officials came out with the statement, “Our hearts and thoughts go out to those who were injured today, and to the families. MCM will be closed while we assist law enforcement’s investigation of this tragic event.”

So with the explosion still being investigated the mall will be closed as long as into next week. Authorities are working as fast as they can to solve this tragic event but for now we just need to keep our thoughts with the families affected.
