Springfield Massachusetts blast: Devastation images and gas leak investigation
Yesterday, I was talking about a huge blast in Springfield Massachusetts that took place on friday afternoon. Officials still do not know were the gas leak is coming from. The new video shows the devastation of the explosion. The building was totally destructed. These are very strong images. Hope nobody was in there!
Boston.com reports Officials that eighteen people were injured, many of them first responders. It is a miracle that nobody was killed!
The victims were taken to two hospitals in the city. None of their injuries was considered life-threatening. Those injured were nine firefighters, two police officers, four Columbia Gas workers, two civilians and another city employee.
A navy veteran also said that the boom from the explosion was louder than anything he’d ever heard, including the sound of a jet landing on an aircraft carrier.
