It has been confirmed that a natural gas leak explosion in New York City claimed the life of 23-year-old Nicholas Figueroa from Buffalo.

The recent Buffalo State graduate was reported missing after the explosion occurred last Thursday, and his family said that he was on a date at the Sushi restaurant located on the ground floor of the building.

After three long days of waiting, the family confirmed that Nicholas' body was among the two that were pulled from the rubble over the weekend. Authorities are continuing to investigate the explosion, but don't expect to find anymore bodies.

Nicholas Figueroa graduated from Buffalo State College with a degree in Criminal Justice.
