The Fire Department and other crews are still at the site of Wednesday's explosion in East Harlem, where two buildings were destroyed from an apparent gas leak. An eighth body was found in the rubble yesterday. The FDNY has said, "We are still in a search and rescue mode," but a law enforcement source told the Post, "There’s always a chance. People like hope, but its not reality."

So far, seven victims have been identified: Griselde Camacho, 44; Carmen Tanco, 67; Rosaura Hernandez, 22; Andreas Panagopoulos, 43; Rosaura Barrios Vazquez, 43; Alexis Salas, 22; and George Amadeo, 44. Three people are still missing.
