Flash grenade accident at federal plaza sends FBI employee to hospital

A federal employee is in the hospital after a flash grenade accidentally detonated at the downtown building where several law enforcement agencies are located.

“An FBI employee was injured after an accidental discharge of a flash bang device,” said FBI spokesperson Kelly Langmesser. “There was no explosion. No act of terrorism. It was an accident.”

The FDNY says one person was taken from 26 Federal Plaza to Bellevue Hospital in serious condition.
