07.25.12 | Sarah Harnisch

All night long, people showed up to the debris field of a house outside the town of Wilson, New York to pay their respects to a family of seven whose house exploded at dawn yesterday morning. Two of the youngest kids were not home a the time of the blast; a 19 year old daughter is in a burn unit in critical condition this morning, both parents and a 16 year old son were blown from the house but are in fair condition, and 14 year old, Sarah Johnson, was killed. Investigators say they believe the cause was a leaky propane tank.
