Police Investigating Explosion at Philadelphia Apartment

Police are saying an explosion caused by a package in a Philadelphia apartment overnight was not an accident.

Police say the explosion happened around 4 a.m. on Tuesday when a 62-year-old man received the package and opened it, thinking it was an inhaler.

He was taken to the hospital with injuries to his hands and chest, but is in stable condition.

Federal agents and the Philadelphia bomb squad investigated the package and found a device inside that they say was meant to injure someone.

Right now, it’s not clear if police know who sent the package or why.
