Authorities in New York are investigating a curious case wherein a massive blast created a huge crater on the beach of an uninhabited island. The odd mystery reportedly began on Sunday morning when people living in the southern part of Long Island heard and felt an enormous blast. As is often happens with such events, concerned residents flooded their local police station with calls and social media lit up with people wondering what had just happened. However, in this instance, questions surrounding where the inexplicable boom could have come from were quickly answered as cops managed to determine its origin.
Investigators traced the blast back to Fox Island, a small nearby spot that is accessible only by boat, where they found a huge and rather worrisome crater measuring four feet wide and two feet deep on the beach. Beyond the huge hole, however, they saw no signs of any explosive device having been detonated. Be that as it may, authorities believe that the blast was detonated by some individual or a group of people and have set their sights on a boat photographed in the general area at the time of the incident.
