A chilling scenario played out on the streets of Queens Sunday.

Hundreds of first responders took part in a large-scale emergency drill.

The disaster simulated a car bombing near a crowded city bus in Long Island City.

The drill included simulated victims with serious injuries and responders on the ground and in the air.

Authorities say to ensure the city is prepared for the worst; responders must train in an environment that is as real as possible.
