This clip is from www.firefighterclosecalls.com and it features an explosion during a control demoliton by an Amsterdam Fire Department. Hamptons Fire - Home of The Best Firefighting Video http://www.hamptonsfire.blogspot.com Explosion Rocks Amsterdam, New York Training Fire Five sent to hospitals after firefighting exercise gets out of control CLAIRE HUGHES Courtesy of Albany NY Times Union Firehouse.com News Update: Firefighters' conditions: One of the injured firefighters remained hospitalized Monday evening at Albany Medical Center, said hospital spokesman Greg McGarry. Firefighter Thomas Champain suffered a right leg fracture and was listed in fair condition, McGarry said. Another firefighter, Jarod Gilston, was admitted to Albany Medical Center in good condition but has since been released. The other firefighters injured in the explosion were treated and released Saturday from St. Mary's Hospital in Amsterdam, NY, said a hospital spokeswoman. Recent Training Accident Stories State Warned Fire Units Against Live Exercises New York Department Curbs Response After Training Explosion Explosion Rocks Amsterdam, NY Training Fire Long Island Firefighter Killed, Second Injured After Being Struck by Car at Drill Site New York Firefigher Rejects Plea Offer in Training Death Lairdsville: What Went Wrong Insider Forward: E-Mail This Page to a Friend or Co-Worker Interact: Discuss This and Other Topics in the Firehouse Forums Amsterdam, NY - A planned training exercise for a volunteer fire department turned into a genuine emergency Saturday when an empty two-story home exploded, sending five firefighters to area hospitals and a plume of dark gray smoke over Route 5. The explosion, which occurred shortly after 8 a.m., injured five firefighters who were apparently hit by falling debris, Michael Beyer, assistant chief of the Cranesville Volunteer Fire Department, which started the burn. Two firefighters were hurt so badly they were airlifted to Albany Medical Center Hospital. On Saturday afternoon, Thomas Champain listed in fair condition, while Jarrod Gilston was in good condition at Albany Med. The explosion rocked nearby homes, reminding some residents of the earthquake that shook the area just one week before. Those closest to the explosion, however, said they felt something many times the strength of the recent temblor, which emanated from Clinton County and registered 5.1 on the Richter scale. "That earthquake was nothing compared to this,'' said Duane Kendle, whose Chapman Drive home sits about 50 feet down a hill from the abandoned building on Poplar Street that was flattened in the explosion. Kendle was sitting in the kitchen at the back of his house drinking coffee when the explosion sent glass over his home and onto both Chapman Drive and adjacent Route 5, he said. "I thought it was a runaway fire truck coming through the wall,'' Kendle said of the boom and its vibrations. "It scared the hell out of me.'' The three other hospitalized firefighters, whose names were withheld by the fire department, were treated and released Saturday from St. Mary's Hospital at Amsterdam, said Jody Kates, a nursing supervisor at the hospital. Several other firefighters were hurt getting their colleagues out of the building, Beyer said. One sprained an ankle while others suffered smoke inhalation, he said. No neighborhood residents were injured, and there was apparently little property damage to nearby homes. The force of the vibrations did blow the lock off an inside door at Kendle's house, he said. About 40 firefighters from the Cranesville Volunteer Fire Department were on the scene Saturday morning to participate in the planned burn, Beyer said. The firefighters had been doing exercises at the site for several weeks in preparation for the burn, he said. An accelerant was used to start the fire, Beyer said, but he would not say whether the fluid mixture was responsible for the explosion that occurred early in the drill. "It's under investigation,'' he said. Amsterdam Town Supervisor DiMezza declined to comment on the cause of the explosion, saying he was awaiting reports from the Cranesville fire department, the Montgomery County Emergency Management Office and the state Office of Fire Prevention and Control, which is investigating the incident. About 50 firefighters from five area volunteer departments responded to the incident, said Don Krutz, assistant chief for the Hagaman Fire Department. Others on the scene were from Fort Johnson, Tribes Hill and the town of Florida. New York fire departments conducting controlled burn exercises, unlike those in many states, are not required by law to follow procedures set out by the National Fire Protection Association, according to an official from the state Office of Fire Prevention and Control. Despite Saturday's experience, Beyer said the fire department will continue to participate in planned burns because the training exercises are crucial to teaching firefighters how to combat a real blaze. Cranesville and three other volunteer fire departments in the town of Amsterdam have conducted about 10 such exercises in the past decade, he said. A similar training exercise turned deadly last year in Lairdsville, near Utica. On Sept. 25, a 19-year-old volunteer fire fighter, Bradley Goldon, died on the second floor of a building after the practice burn got out of control. In February, Assistant Chief Alan Baird was charged with manslaughter in Goldon's death. In Amsterdam, Beyer declined to say who owns the property on Poplar Street, except to say it is not the town of Amsterdam or Montgomery County. Nearby residents said they'd been informed in advance that firefighters intended to burn the building as a training exercise. Kurt Semon, said the structure has been empty for the eight years he has lived on Drive, two doors down from the intersection with Poplar Street. After undergoing the trauma of a real blaze and seeing their colleagues injured, firefighters received stress debriefing sessions Saturday to help them handle anxiety and other negative emotions, Beyer said. Professionals from St. Mary's Hospital encouraged them to cry, to talk and to do anything else that would help them release the stress. "Basically they tell us that it's OK not to be the manly man,'' Beyer said. writer Andrew Tilghman contributed to this report.

Daniel Wretström (October 15, 1983 - December 9, 2000) was a young Swedish boy who was brutally murdered in Salem, a suburb to Stockholm by a multicultural gang consisting of up to as many as 15 immigrants and at least 1 Swedish. Daniel was waiting for the bus at the bus stop on Säbytorgsvägen, he is on his way home from a party, suddenly a multicultural gang shows up and screams and is shouting "Racist" as they approach Daniel, a Swedish girl with a foreign accent screams "racist! Do you dare to stay? Are you scared" "Beat him to death". The gang, encouraged by the knowledge that it is OK to assault Swedes who they suspect are racist. Only a few days earlier, the Swedish Prime minister Göran Persson stated in an article of one of Swedens largest newspapers that racism has to be crushed, the multicultural gang was determined to make these words reality. After being hit with sticks and other objects, and kicked a dozen of times, a car comes passing by on the road, Daniel tries to escape the gang by throwing himself up on the cars hood. "Please, help me" he says, hoping that the driver will keep on driving and take him to safety, instead one of the gang members shouts to the driver that he is a racist, and the car driver starts driving back and forward to try to shake off Daniel. Finally, the gang comes and drags him off the cars hood, and whilst the car just drives away the battering continues. The gang keeps on kicking and hitting him repeatedly with planks and sticks against Daniels head and body. The boy is now almost lifeless, lying in the ditch. One of the attackers grabs a 1.5 meter long plank and hits the boy in the head with it over and over again, he does not stop until a teenage girl who passed by screams hysterically at him and begs him to stop. One of the girls who are participating in the battering of the boy then shouts back to the protesting girl that "The racist deserves it" and the gang member who is holding the plank is raising it towards the witness in a threatening gesture. They jump on the head and neck of the almost lifeless boy. Out of my way, I have got a knife! one shouts as he rushes forward towards the almost lifeless boy holding a carving knife. The other gang members leave place for Khaled Odeh who sits astride on the boys back. He raises and lowers the large carving knife again and again. After stabbing the boy at least four times in the back, the blade brakes in half. Khaled then takes the boys head with his left hand to pull it backwards. He feels a raging hatred for the mutilated young boy; a boy that he knows threatens democracy; a boy who murders small children, he knows that the boy must be crushed. So he decides what to do. I will kill him. The words go through his mind as he forces what is left of the knife into the throat of the boy. Satisfied that he has liberated society from a racist he elatedly gets up on his feet. The blood, which is covering his hands, is still warm. He looks around and shouts to the people standing around him that no one has seen him. Then he runs away with his brother after him. The rest of the gang members walk their separate ways and disappear. Crush racism, someone shouts among the shadows. But Khaled Odeh has been seen. The Swedish girl who witnessed the brutal assault approaches the boy with tears in her eyes. The boy is trying to raise his head but fails. His clothes are drowned with blood which is pumping out of his slashed neck artery. He is trying to gasp for breath, out of his mouth is heard a wheezing sound, when his head again falls to the ground in the cold ditch. The life runs out of Daniel Wretström as the girl desperately tries to save him. The legal consequences have been described as a farce, where judges and jurymen declared Swedish youth outlaws and with no legal rights. The killer, Khaled Odeh, was sentenced for manslaughter to psychiatric care since the court came to the conclusion that he suffered from temporary insanity when he committed the crime. When the verdict is formulated this way it is not unusual that the convicted is declared healthy after about a year and is released. Only six of his companions were prosecuted. Three of them were sentenced to forty hours of community service and contact with the social services. Two of those remaining were ordered to pay 1800 Swedish crowns (about 200 Euros) in fines and the last one was released on parole and ordered to pay 1800 crowns in fines. Is a Swedish boys life worth that little? Less than a speeding ticket. To keep the memory of one of the Swedish young citizens whose blood has been spilled upon the sacrificial altar of the establishment, alive, there is an annual memorial march, around the anniversary of the murder. The year of 2001, 1400 demonstrators gathered to protest against the accelerating violence against Swedes.

Ayrton Senna da Silva (pronounced [aˈiɾtõ ˈsenɐ dɐ ˈsiwvɐ] (help·info), March 21, 1960 May 1, 1994) was a Brazilian racing driver and triple Formula One world champion. He remains the last Grand Prix driver killed while driving a Formula One car. A kart racer from an early age, Senna won the British Formula 3 championship in 1983 and made his Formula One debut with Toleman the next year. He moved to Lotus-Renault in 1985, and won six Grands Prix over the next three seasons. In 1988 he joined Frenchman Alain Prost at McLaren-Honda, the top driver and team at the time, and won that year's championship. He and Prost developed a heated rivalry, which is regarded as the bitterest in F1 history. Senna also won the 1990 and 1991 F1 championships. In the next two years with McLaren, despite driving an inferior car, Senna won races and challenged for the 1993 world title, finishing runner-up to Prost. He switched to the then-dominant Williams Renault team for the 1994 season. At the third race of the year millions of fans witnessed his fatal crash live on global TV coverage whilst leading the San Marino Grand Prix.At the third race of the season, the San Marino Grand Prix at Imola, Senna declared that this was where his season would start, with fourteen races, as opposed to sixteen, in which to win the title.[49] Senna again placed the car on pole, but he was particularly upset by two events. On Friday, during the afternoon qualifying session, Senna's protégé, the then F1 newcomer Rubens Barrichello, was involved in a serious accident that prevented him from competing in the race. The next day, Austrian driver Roland Ratzenberger was killed in a practice accident. Senna spent his final morning meeting fellow drivers, determined after Ratzenberger's accident to take on a new responsibility to re-create a Drivers' Safety group (i.e. Grand Prix Drivers' Association) to increase safety in Formula One. As the most senior driver, he offered to take the role of leader in this effort. Senna and the other drivers all opted to start the Grand Prix, but the race was interrupted by a huge accident at the start line. A safety car was deployed and the drivers followed it for several laps. On the restart Senna immediately set a quick pace with the third quickest lap of the race, followed by Schumacher. As Senna entered the high-speed Tamburello corner on the next lap, the car left the track at high speed, hitting the concrete retaining wall at around 135 mph. Senna was removed from the car by Sid Watkins and his medical team and treated by the side of the car before being airlifted to Bologna hospital where Senna was later declared dead. What had likely happened was that the right front wheel had shot up after impact like a catapult and violated the cockpit area where Senna was sitting. It impacted the right frontal area of his helmet, and the violence of the wheels impact pushed his head back against the headrest, causing fatal skull fractures. A piece of upright attached to the wheel had partially penetrated his helmet and made a big indent in his forehead. In addition, it appeared that a jagged piece of the upright assembly had penetrated the helmet visor just above his right eye. Any one of the three injuries would probably have killed him.[50] As track officials examined the wreckage of his racing car they found a furled Austrian flag -- a victory flag that he was going to raise in honour of Austrian Roland Ratzenberger, who had died on that track the day before.[51] To this day, the cause of the accident has still not been fully determined after many court cases, including Williams being investigated for manslaughter though the charges were later dropped.Ayrton Senna da Silva (São Paulo, 21 de março de 1960 — Bolonha, Itália, 1 de maio de 1994) foi um piloto brasileiro de Fórmula 1, três vezes campeão mundial, nos anos de 1988, 1990 e 1991. Foi também vice-campeão no controverso campeonato de 1989 e em 1993. Faleceu em acidente no Autódromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari, em Ímola, durante o Grande Prêmio de San Marino de 1994. Sua excelente performance nas fórmulas anteriores (especialmente na Fórmula 3 inglesa em 1983) o levou a estrear na Fórmula 1 no Grande Prêmio do Brasil de 1984 pela equipe Toleman-Hart. Logo na sua primeira temporada na categoria máxima, Senna demonstrou rapidamente um talento excepcional levando a pequena equipe inglesa à exaustão e a obter resultados jamais alcançados. É considerado um dos maiores nomes do esporte brasileiro e um dos maiores pilotos da história do automobilismo.Na terceira corrida da temporada, o GP de San Marino, em Ímola, Senna declarou que esta deveria ser a corrida de início da temporada para ele, pois não havia terminado as anteriores e agora faltavam apenas catorze corridas. Senna mais uma vez conquistou a pole, mas o fim de semana não seria tão fácil.

It impacted the right frontal area of his helmet, and the violence of the wheels impact pushed his head back against the headrest, causing fatal skull fractures. A piece of upright attached to the wheel had partially penetrated his helmet and made a big indent in his forehead. In addition, it appeared that a jagged piece of the upright assembly had penetrated the helmet visor just above his right eye. Any one of the three injuries would probably have killed him.[50] As track officials examined the wreckage of his racing car they found a furled Austrian flag -- a victory flag that he was going to raise in honour of Austrian Roland Ratzenberger, who had died on that track the day before.To this day, the cause of the accident has still not been fully determined after many court cases, including Williams being investigated for manslaughter though the charges were later dropped.Ayrton Senna da Silva (São Paulo, 21 de março de 1960 — Bolonha, Itália, 1 de maio de 1994) foi um piloto brasileiro de Fórmula 1, três vezes campeão mundial, nos anos de 1988, 1990 e 1991.

Some VIP in Ayrton Senna's wake.Ayrton Senna da Silva , March 21, 1960 May 1, 1994) was a Brazilian racing driver and triple Formula One world champion. He remains the last Grand Prix driver killed while driving a Formula One car.A kart racer from an early age, Senna won the British Formula 3 championship in 1983 and made his Formula One debut with Toleman the next year. He moved to Lotus-Renault in 1985, and won six Grands Prix over the next three seasons. In 1988 he joined Frenchman Alain Prost at McLaren-Honda, the top driver and team at the time, and won that year's championship. He and Prost developed a heated rivalry, which is regarded as the bitterest in F1 history. Senna also won the 1990 and 1991 F1 championships. In the next two years with McLaren, despite driving an inferior car, Senna won races and challenged for the 1993 world title, finishing runner-up to Prost. He switched to the then-dominant Williams Renault team for the 1994 season. At the third race of the year millions of fans witnessed his fatal crash live on global TV coverage whilst leading the San Marino Grand Prix.At the third race of the season, the San Marino Grand Prix at Imola, Senna declared that this was where his season would start, with fourteen races, as opposed to sixteen, in which to win the title.[49] Senna again placed the car on pole, but he was particularly upset by two events. On Friday, during the afternoon qualifying session, Senna's protégé, the then F1 newcomer Rubens Barrichello, was involved in a serious accident that prevented him from competing in the race. The next day, Austrian driver Roland Ratzenberger was killed in a practice accident.Senna spent his final morning meeting fellow drivers, determined after Ratzenberger's accident to take on a new responsibility to re-create a Drivers' Safety group (i.e. Grand Prix Drivers' Association) to increase safety in Formula One. As the most senior driver, he offered to take the role of leader in this effort.Senna and the other drivers all opted to start the Grand Prix, but the race was interrupted by a huge accident at the start line. A safety car was deployed and the drivers followed it for several laps. On the restart Senna immediately set a quick pace with the third quickest lap of the race, followed by Schumacher. As Senna entered the high-speed Tamburello corner on the next lap, the car left the track at high speed, hitting the concrete retaining wall at around 135 mph. Senna was removed from the car by Sid Watkins and his medical team and treated by the side of the car before being airlifted to Bologna hospital where Senna was later declared dead.
