“I hope no one’s hurt. The good thing is that I heard paramedics within a minute at least,” Jeffery Bean, who lives and works in Midtown, told the news outlet. “Thankfully, the people that I saw walking toward the ambulances, at least initially, appeared to mostly just be holding their arms as if it was just minor injuries to their arms.”
