New York Correction Officer Severely Burned by Explosive Delivered to His Home

May 31, 2016  | 

An upstate New York correction officer was severely injured Sunday after opening an explosive package sent to his Floyd home, the Oneida (NY) County Sheriff’s Office said.

The 52-year-old unidentified officer’s upper body was severely burned in the explosion, which happened around 8 a.m. Sunday, Oneida County Sheriff Robert Maciol said in a statement on Facebook.

The officer works for the New York State Department of Corrections but it was not immediately clear if the incident is connected to his employment, Maciol said. Oneida County is home to three medium-security New York State prisons that house inmates from across the state, reports CNN.
