Condolences (Train Explosion in Quebec - 15 Fatalities, 60 missing)
 
I just want to pass on my thoughts with the people affected by the train explosion.

Much appreciated bud

Thanks, WFTY!

I hadn't heard about the explosion until this thread. Just checked now and apparently there are five fatalities and 40 people are still missing. Scary stuff.

ThaDevilGirl 07-07-2013 04:22 PM

So, so tragic.

My thoughts to Lac Mégantic's population, family and friends.

Not a problem. You guys were with us during the Boston Marathon attack, we're with you during this tragedy.

Very terrible news. Condolences to the population and all who know people who live there.

I'm surprised they talked about this in the US. Thanks a lot.

I know someone who lives there but he told me he was safe, fortunately.

That was an insanely huge fire.

Tragic accident.

Damn.

Good Lord.. Sorry for anyone's and everyone's loss. Life has thrown me a few "curve balls" but nothing like this. For what it is worth.

Thanks Yeti - classy! :yo:

Still can't believe that a bomb train on fire made 11km without someone even being aware of it.

NobleSix 07-07-2013 05:37 PM

Very sad day.

GilliesGirlie 07-07-2013 06:44 PM

Just stopping by to say my prayers are with Quebec and all those affected.
It's heartbreaking!!!
God Speed...

Aspirine 07-07-2013 06:47 PM

Truly insane that things like this can still happen. :(

Beatnik 07-07-2013 07:27 PM

Terrible tragedy. The huge fire did not give any chance to the survivors of the hit :(

Such a small community too, the town will suffer from that for a long time.

LeHaboholique 07-07-2013 08:05 PM

R.I.P to everyone affected. My prayers and condolences are with the every single family.

Le Tricolore 07-07-2013 08:21 PM

Tragic. :(

Lilou 07-07-2013 09:06 PM

Just read some people may have just vaporized? That's nuts. R.I.P to all of them.. so sad.

That's what happens when nobody is driving.

God knows what would have been the death toll had this accident occurred during the day, when downtown megantic was filled with people.

Raym11 07-07-2013 09:13 PM

that picture is devastating to look at holy ****... I hope some of the missing are OK.

Brainiac 07-07-2013 09:20 PM

Crazy stuff. My thoughts are with the people of Lac-Mégantic.

Analyzer* 07-07-2013 09:56 PM

Watched a news feed. The devastation in that town is immense.

The size of the town and the way it's described sounds a lot like my town. We don't have a railroad going through it anymore. That and being in Ontario are probably the only differences...

My condolences to everyone affected.

Pretty hard to follow, but what I'm getting from the video is that at least two of his sons and their wives were together at the time of the explosion. When it occurred, the eldest son grabbed his wife and bolted, telling his younger brother to follow because they needed to gtfo. The younger brother, named Gaetan, said "i need to get my wife", but didn't make it out alive . The one that did make ran with his wife down an entire road and over a bridge to get out of the growing flames' path. Both suffered serous burns. Whether or not the wife lived is unclear to me, because he said God spared two, and he mentioned another son Pascal that escaped the blaze because he left 10 minutes before the explosion to ho see his kids.
