(PIX11) – Two children were injured aboard a Queens bus after being burned by an unknown substance that leaked out of a man’s backpack.

The victims were on the Q53 bus on the corner of Metropolitan Ave. and Woodhaven Blvd. in Forest Hills when police say an unknown liquid carried inside a plastic bottle dripped onto the children and burned them.

Sources tell PIX11 that the man works at  John F. Kennedy Airport and was carrying a bottle of industrial cleaning solution that he was not authorized to have.
