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.

The SXSW festival has been marred by tragedy this morning.

Just after 12:30 AM, a man drove his car into a crowd of people on Red River Street in Austin, TX. 23 people were injured, and so far two have been reported dead.

Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo said in a press conference held early this morning that the suspect, currently in custody, was being stopped for a DWI and tried to escape.

His car struck several people and vehicles and killed a couple driving a moped.

Chief Acevedo says the suspect will be charged with two counts of capital murder for those deaths.

So horrible.

Michael Fassbender Bequeaths Us His Fabulous Shakespearean Fassboner On The SeXXXy Set Of Macbeth!

michael fassbender macbeth england set bleeding head sexy

To be or not to be, that is the question!

OK, to be fair, it's the question from one of William Shakespeare's different masterpieces, but who remembers anything about Macbeth anyway except for those witches brewing up a pot of toil and trouble?

Anyway, Michael Fassbender plays the titular lead in a new incarnation of the classic stage production - he's an ambitious Scottish general and there's a bunch of tragedy and stuff, LOLz!!

More to the point, cameras caught the charming actor on set in Surrey, England over the weekend - Mike looked hotter than a volcano and was twice as red, too!

That's because the dude had blood flowing out of a gaping gash on his forehead!! OUCH!

Hopefully that's makeup for his character, though, and not Fassypant's real blood!

Of course, were he really hurt, we would be more than willing to be his bedside nurse. Well, at least if Marion Cotillard, a.k.a. Lady Macbeth, doesn't mind!

Macbeth hits theaters in 2015 - see more pics of Fassbender and his fab Fassboner (below)!

Philip Seymour Hoffman's Deep Addictions Further Revealed: Variety & Numerous Prescription Pills Found In His Apartment

Filed under: DrugsR.I.P.Sad SadPhilip Seymour Hoffman

philip seymour hoffman prescription pills

This sad story is proving just how horrible addiction can be for a person.

Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead in his New York apartment this weekend, and it's clearly looking like an overdose was the reason.

But while heroin seems to be the main culprit, that wasn't the extent of his addiction. He was reportedly also found with methocarbamol (muscle relaxer), hydroxyzine (anti-anxiety), Vyvanse (ADHD), buprenorphine, and clonidine hydrochloride (blood pressure) at his place.

Those prescriptions are used to treat addiction, ADHD, and anxiety. It's unknown at this time whether or not he had prescriptions for those pills.

We hope this tragedy will help others struggling with addiction to seek the help they need.

philip seymour hoffman plans with kids death

Oh no! This just breaks our heart even more!

The aftermath of Philip Seymour Hoffman's terrible death is happening and we're finding out so many heartbreaking details that we just can't even imagine it.

Not only was his drug problem even worse than anyone knew, but apparently Philip had plans with his children the day he died.

So, so sad.

Reportedly, Philip was due to pick up his kids, ten-year-old Cooper, seven-year-old Tallulah, & five-year-old Willa, from his longtime partner, Mimi O'Donnell, and when he "uncharacteristically" did not show up, his friends and family became worried.

That's when his personal assistant went to the apartment to check in on the actor & found him with the needle in his arm.

Not only this, but he was supposed to watch the Super Bowl that night with his son!

Such a tragedy!!
