Terror victim is ‘angry’ after Port Authority attack, family says

One of the victims in Monday’s terror bombing under the Port Authority Bus Terminal is “angry” and on edge hours after the rush-hour attack, her family told The Post.

Alfonso Chavez, 42, said his sister Veronica Chavez, 45, was “steps away from the explosion” when suspect Akayed Ullah allegedly detonated a homemade pipe bomb inside an underground Port Authority passageway connecting subway lines.

“[It was] awful because she saw people fall to the ground. She saw dust everywhere. She saw people under debris. She’s nervous, she’s scared. Like everyone else, we’re angry,” Alfonso said.

Veronica and brother Juan Chavez, 40, were on their way to work at a Midtown factory when the blast struck, and the woman took the brunt of the blow, Alfonso said.

“My brother was behind her, but with my sister, she was a few steps away from the incident,” he said. “It’s sad that we have to go through this.”

Three victims were hurt, and so was Ullah. Veronica and Juan were being treated at Mt. Sinai West hospital.
