A neighbor captured this video of the Midwood fire last night that claimed the life of a rabbi’s eight-year-old son, Avigdor Krasny, at 1118 Avenue P, near East 12th Street.
Five other children were ultimately saved by their father, who moved swiftly to escort them out of the house. Still, all five were hospitalized, including a one-year-old in critical condition. Four firefighters also suffered minor injuries.
Ceremonial candles could be seen burning not on a table in the home just before the blaze, a neighbor told NY1.
