Agwisun Oil Tanker Blast, 1926
Agwisun Oil Tanker Blast
Several blasts tore through and shredded much of the 4,000 ton Agwisum oil tanker as it was undergoing repairs in the yards of the Robins Dry Dock and Repair Comapny. The effects of the explosions were felt as far away as Park Slope. Despite the extensive damages and fires that resulted, there were no fatalities though several crewmen suffered serious injuries.
