Incredible Home Video Of Fertilizer Plant Explosion
This amateur home video was captured by a man at the time of the massive explosion yesterday evening at a small fertilizer business in West, Texas where local farmers purchased anhydrous ammonia. The cries of his boy following the startling explosion are heart-wrenching. Although this was a rural area, this blast proved far more deadly than Monday's intentional setting of bombs in Boston. As many as 15 people are feared dead and dozens others were injured. Country music legend Willie Nelson grew up just miles from this town. "West has been in my backyard all my life," Nelson tweeted early Thursday. "My heart is praying for the community that we call home."
