An overnight rescue effort in New York brought only additional sadness as crews searched the rubble of what used to be two apartment buildings in Harlem.

Firefighters worked throughout the night, with temperatures plummeting, trying to locate any survivors from the apparent gas explosion. They found none.

Seven people have now been found dead. One victim pulled from the debris was so badly burned, their identity has yet to be confirmed.

To make matters worse, five additional people are still unaccounted for.

The search for those individuals continues today. Mayor Bill de Blasio is expected to update the city and the world on the latest information later this morning.

Such a tragedy.

Stay tuned for more details.
