Talk about being in the right place at the right time, this guy was front row, but far enough away that he wasn’t hurt.
From the OP …. This is my view. People got hurt n pretty much trampled where I was standing. I was trying to record then everyone booked it, then I took off. Scary shit.
More than 250 oil workers escaped injury Thursday morning after an explosion rocked the Anadarko gas refinery near Orla and forced safety workers to evacuate people from a 10-mile radius, officials said. Only two workers were reported to have minor injuries by late Thursday. The black plume of smoke from the refinery was visible from as far away as the Guadalupe Mountains and the explosion could be felt 25 miles away. The fire broke out about 9 a.m. at the Ramsey Natural Gas Processing Plant near Orla, about 45 miles away from Carlsbad. The plant is owned by Western Gas Partners and is operated by Anadarko Petroleum Corporation.
