Found explosive closes St. Luke’s temporarily

Press photo by Nate Jastrzemski St. Luke's University Hospital's Fountain Hill campus temporarily closes its emergency room Oct. 15 due to the unexpected presence of an explosive device. Administrators report there was no call or threat made – a patient, Brian James Kunsman, 44, of Philadelphia, arrived at the emergency room with a pipe bomb in his backpack. This was no threat made or implied. It is reported police said the man was transported to the hospital around 7 a.m. after suffering an injury in a car accident in Lower Saucon Township. While still investigating the incident, police said it appeared the man may have simply forgotten its presence, but he will almost certainly be facing a charge of possessing a weapon of mass destruction.
