It probably was a bad accident - a lot of these seem to be happening lately, though. My concern is that the "work ethic" round the world along with the poor education of workers is leaving us more exposed to this type of incident than the "terror attacks" that we're pushed to focus on being afraid of.
Quite frankly, we're way more likely to kill ourselves!
A new leak has been discovered at the Blue Rhino plant after explosions and a fire rocked the area late Monday night.
The leak is in one of the large 90,000-pound cylinders at the plant on CR 448 in Tavares. Firefighters are currently dousing the cylinder with water.
Twenty-four employees were inside when the fire started late Monday night.
“According to the Blue Rhino management, everyone who was scheduled to work, has been accounted for,” said Lt. John Herrell from the Lake County Sheriff’s Office.
Eight people were hospitalized, but that was still welcome news compared to the initial panic when no one knew where the other employees were.
No,it's just that this deep crisis has brought human senses to a lower minimum by taking the power of concentration of the people where most needed.
Trains buses and all kind of things are crashing and blowing up.
to many at one time for coincidence.
are they keeping terrorist attacks quiet?
or is America the Terrorist?

The late-night fireball that set off a series of spectacular explosions at a propane depot in Lake County may have been sparked by equipment failure and human error, Tavares Fire Chief Richard Keith said as federal authorities joined the inquiry.
Investigators were forced to suspend their probe Tuesday amid the smoldering hunks of metal at the Blue Rhino plant because of the risk posed by a huge, leaking storage tank.
The tank, one of three bulk containers holding about 30,000 pounds of liquefied propane, withstood the intense heat that melted vehicles in the employee parking lot but may have been damaged by propane cylinders that flew like missiles from the flames.
Keith wouldn't elaborate on the possible cause but said sabotage was not suspected
