3 admitted to hospital in N.J. gas explosion

EWING, N.J. (AP) — Authorities say just three of seven people hurt in a gas explosion in New Jersey will need to be admitted to a hospital, and a hospital official says none has life-threatening injuries.

The head of trauma at Capital Regional Medical Center in Trenton says one injured man was undergoing emergency surgery late Tuesday afternoon.

Hours earlier, PSE&G crews were repairing a gas line damaged by a private contractor when the gas ignited at a suburban town house development. One home blew up, and others were damaged.

Dr. Louis D'Amelio says the injuries from the explosion include concussions, broken bones and minor shrapnel wounds.

D'Amelio says all three people being hospitalized were close to the house that blew up.
