Re: Not good, waiting on detials, major fireworks mishap....

latest news link here

about 50 people hurt, 3 of my friends were trewated at the scene with merely a scratch some were not so lucky.... from first hand accounts the news is sugar coating the whole scene !?

luckily it was not worse.....

Re: Not good, waiting on detials, major fireworks mishap....

That's some scary sh#t! I just heard about the incident this morning. I've been away from TV and radio since yesterday afternoon. I hope all your friends are feeling better, and all those hurt seriously survive and recover quickly. I hope none of my friends or family was there last night. I think I would have heard by now.

It sucks to talk to you about something like this. Hopefully we'll get together to talk about bikes soon!

Re: Not good, waiting on detials, major fireworks mishap....

It definitely sounds like someone is trying to hide something. They said an explosion inside one of the tubes caused a chain reaction. A truly professional setup has redundant barriers to prevent this from occurring.

Re: Not good, waiting on detials, major fireworks mishap....

the news said 50 hurt, the paper says 15, people on the scene say many more.... the mayor said it was a freak accident and was handled very well, wtf ???

first off it says the fireworks company contract stated that people must be no nearer then 300ft, according to papers people were as near as 73ft ducking the barriers... there is a huge coverup in the works.....

Aftermath Counting (A. K. Dewdney)- What the press has a tendency to do after a major disaster. It is the counting of known casualties from the police, paramedics, hospitals, and morgues, without considering duplication.

Re: Not good, waiting on detials, major fireworks mishap....

Wow. Sorry about that. We had an accident here as well but no casualties.
