8 Dead After Rental Truck Drives Into Bicycles And School Bus Near World Trade Center

Filed under: Icky Icky PooSad SadNew YorkViolenceViral: News

UPDATE 8:03 P.M. EST: The suspect has been identified as Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov. Law enforcement officials say the man moved to the States from Uzbekistan in 2010. He has lived in Ohio, Florida, and, most recently, New Jersey. According to officials, he has a wife and three children.


At least eight people are dead with more injured after an apparent act of terrorism near the site of the 9/11 attack.

According to reports, a 29-year-old man rented a Home Depot truck and drove it into a busy bicycle path in Lower Manhattan, near the site of the World Trade Center.

He drove for at least 10 blocks, hitting a dozen people.

Witnesses say they saw him swerve to hit a "special ed" school bus that was carrying three children, scream "allahu akbar," then exit the vehicle carrying what's being called "imitation firearms" (possibly BB or paint guns).

Police responded and shot the driver, who was then brought to the hospital.

The death toll is currently eight; no word yet on whether any were the schoolchildren.

The mode of attack and statement by the driver have already led authorities to refer to the incident as a terror attack; Mayor Bill de Blasio called the incident a "particularly cowardly act of terror aimed at innocent civilians." See his and Governor Andrew Cuomo's remarks (below):

With the pic, Bauler shared a small bit of Harding's story, writing:

This is so touching, done in a way only a comedian could do!

Davidson's dad had been a firefighter who was killed in the line of duty during the attacks, and never got to see his son become the youngest member of the current cast of Saturday Night Live — and thus far the only member born in the 1990s.

So Pete did today what only a funnyman could do: he roasted his dad a little bit on Instagram!

Ch-ch-check out Pete's first IG post — part serious, part humorous, part beer-for-an-infant (below):

Hillary Clinton Reportedly Gets 'Overheated,' Leaves Early From September 11 Memorial Ceremony

UPDATE 8:23 A.M. EST: After Hillary Clinton's health made headlines over the weekend, it appears we've finally got answer about what exactly caused the former Secretary of State to almost faint at a September 11 Memorial ceremony. In a recent statement, Dr. Lisa R. Bardack shared:

"Secretary Clinton has been experiencing a cough related to allergies. On Friday, during follow up evaluation of her prolonged cough, she was diagnosed with pneumonia. She was put on antibiotics, and advised to rest and modify her schedule. While at the event, she became overheated and dehydrated."

Oh no! Although, don't be too concerned for the presidential hopeful as the doc as since checked in on her patient and added that Hil's "re-hydrated and recovering nicely." Phew!


Nearly three hours into the September 11 Memorial ceremony today at Ground Zero in New York City, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton became "overheated" and was forced to leave early.

Secretary Clinton went to her daughter Chelsea's apartment in New York to cool down, and a few hours after that, appeared to be doing fine.
