Video Shows Good Samaritans Delivering Treats to First Responders in NYC

Zach Escalante(NEW YORK) -- Video shows Good Samaritans delivering pizza and coffee to police officers guarding the scene of this weekend's explosion in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City.

A video posted to Instagram shows New Yorkers approaching the NYPD officers guarding the scene with boxes of pizza.

Another video shows a man handing out coffee and pastries to officers working the scene. An officer tells the man "thank you" as he hands the treats over the barricade.

There were three explosions over the weekend, one in Chelsea and two others in New Jersey. The explosion in Chelsea injured 29 people. There were no fatalities.

Ahmad Khan Rahami, who was named a person of interest in the explosions, was taken into custody earlier Monday morning after a shootout with police in Linden, New Jersey.
