Filed under: Sad Sad

How insanely horrifying!

We’re receiving reports that confirm a massive explosion at a fertilizer plant in the small Texas town of West, which is about 20 miles outside of Waco.

At around 8PM local time, a fiery explosion erupted from the West Fertilizer Plant – cause still unknown – which sent a fireball bursting into the sky and caused extreme damaged to miles of property. The blast leveled many people’s homes and the town was immediately evacuated.

D.L Wilson from the Department Of Public Safety confirmed that a “tremendous” amount of people were injured, citing “over 100 injuries” so far. He added that there were confirmed fatalities, though he was not at liberty to reveal a number just yet. He continued to confirm that an apartment complex close to the plant, with nearly 50 units, was demolished “to its skeleton”, along with 50-75 houses and a nursing home.

A field triage station remains set up on a football field near the plant to help treat the wounded, and as for the plant, the blaze is still smoldering and there is fear of the toxins being released into the air. He added that his team will be searching every house and every location they can, all through the night, to rescue other survivors that could still be trapped.

Devastating. Truly heartbreaking.

Our thoughts and condolences go out to everyone affected in this small town. Stay strong!

Filed under: Sad SadRunningViolenceScary!

boston marathon explosion bomb tragedy deaths victim identified

At the request of her family, we won't be identifying the third victim of the horrible Boston Marathon bombing by picture. She was a student at Boston University. The second victim was identified yesterday.

News outlets first thought that it was a student named Zhou Danling, but that was incorrect as the official Xinhua and the Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post were reporting Zhou was only injured.

The consulate had also announced that another student, named Lu Lingzi, was missing. After the announcement, that's when her family asked to keep it quiet and to keep her pictures out of the press.

Tragic Balloon Accident Kills 19!

tragic balloon accident kills 19

So sad! And scary!

19 tourists are dead after a horrific hot air balloon crash in Luxor, Egypt.

Hot air balloons may seem safe and slow, but just like any other aircraft, all it takes is one little thing going wrong to cause a disaster.

According to reports, either a loose cable or a minor collision caused a gas explosion that sent the balloon rocketing 300 meters into the sky.

Citizens from the UK, China, Japan, France, Hungary, and Egypt were aboard. Somehow there were two survivors- the pilot and a single tourist who leapt from over 30 feet to the ground below.

3 Dead After Shooting Causes FIERY Car Explosion & SHUTS DOWN Las Vegas Strip!!

Filed under: R.I.P.Sin CitySad Sad

las vegas shooting car explosion 3 dead  opt

This sounds like something out of a crazy action film! But unfortunately, this fatal incident was all too real.

The Las Vegas strip was completely SHUT DOWN early Thursday morning after a vehicle shootout caused a fiery, six-car collision.

The horrific occurrence happened when an occupant of a black SUV that was stopped at a red light began SHOOTING at the people in a Maserati directly next to them.

The Maserati then apparently jerked into the intersection of Las Vegas Boulevard & Flamingo Road and smashed into a taxi, resulting in a fiery explosion and a chain reaction of crashes that reportedly involved 4 other vehicles.

Three people were killed — the taxi driver and its passenger, the driver of the Mazerati — and at least three others suffered injuries.

Sadly, the people who instigated the whole sh*tshow escaped, and no news as to WHO these people were OR what their motive might have been.

SO so sad.

May those who have suffered because of this tragic ordeal find some sort of peace.
