Mariner Middle students on a field trip to New York City May 18 were safe from tragic events in Times Square.

About 30 students went to see the “Phantom of the Opera” on Broadway and were in the Broadway theater for the 2 p.m. show, said Principal Fred Best.

“All students are fine. No one was impacted,” he said.

According to CBS news, a Bronx man, 26, is in custody after he drove through a crowd of pedestrians in Times Square at about noon. One person was killed and 19 were wounded, according to the latest news reports.
