Texas Explosion Video — Girl Cries To Father: Get Me Out Of Here

Thu, April 18, 2013 4:08pm EST by 16 Comments

A father fights for survival as his two daughters nearly go deaf after the deadly Texas fertility plant explosion. Watch the chilling moment where this family struggles to make it through the blast.

Derrick Hurtt was filming the massive fire at a West Fertilizer Plant in West, Texas with his young daughters Khloey, 12, and Kinley on the night of April 17 on his cell phone from their truck parked far away. Suddenly, the plant exploded — a blast that killed 15 and injured more than 100 — and the terrified family scrambled to find safety.

Texas Plant Explosion: Khloey Screams ‘Dad, I Can’t Hear’

Derrick and his daughters were watching the fire when the plant exploded — and the blast was so loud and massive, it rocked their truck and made his daughter Khloey temporarily lose her hearing. The family tried to scramble to safety while their cries and screams for help are still caught on camera.

Khloey is heard screaming in the video:

Dad, I can’t hear… Get out of here. Please get out of here. Daddy, please get out of here.

Frightened by the explosion, the dad hurries to drive their truck away from the site with his daughters in the vehicle.

Derrick Hurtt Says He & Daughters Are OK

Luckily, the family left the scene unharmed — a miracle, considering the blast killed at least 15 people.

He told Matt Lauer on Today on April 18 that the scene was horrific, and there were others like him watching the fire before the explosion. He said on Today:

There was probably double-digit people standing in front of me videoing that were closer than I was, and after the blast, they were nowhere to be seen.

The father also said his daughter Khloey’s ears are still sore, but her hearing is restored.

What do YOU think of the explosion, HollyMoms? Are you shocked by the video?

Gillard has faced serial abuse as a woman on a scale I believe is unprecedented in modern politics. I know that the phrase “The Iron Lady” was coined by the Russians as an insult to Margaret Thatcher, but it became a mark of their admiration. That negative, corrosive, anti-woman rhetoric that Gillard endured for so long has damaged Australian politics, and public opinion. So last year, when David Farley, head of one of the countrys largest agricultural companies, compared the prime minister to a “non-productive old cow, there was no public outcry.

There is a case to be made that marriage is something straight people invented and yet gay people might turn out to be better at C like football for the English. The gracious thing would be to open it up to everyone and see who wins. Which is, give or take a House of Lords revolt, what has happened.

Shop for a Lexus and you tend to expect a lot of toys to play with and you won’t be disappointed by the value proposition offered by the IS 300h. Even the entry-level version, which opens at around 30,000, has a quota of extras that can put German rivals to shame. You might want to upgrade the SE’s 16-inch alloys but otherwise it’s doubtful you’ll be disappointed with the Drive mode select system (Normal, Eco & Sport – plus an additional EV mode on this IS 300h), cruise control, a smart entry and start system, dual zone air climate control and power-fold heated mirrors. Then there are HID headlights with dusk sensing, eight airbags, plus a DAB digital radio and Bluetooth connectivity.

Since there’s no jury hearing the case, it’s up to U.S. District Judge Denise Cote to decide whether the MFN was merely a fiendishly clever clause designed to further Apple’s legitimate business interests or the linchpin of fiendish — and illegal — conspiracy. It may be telling that she questioned Saul closely about that letter to Wiley before letting him off the stand.

Although the conventional wisdom holds that foreign policy is a strength for a president who finally managed to kill Americas Enemy Number One Osama bin Laden Rove and Gillespie are sure its a weakness, and one that should be exploited by this years nominee, whoever he is. The nominee should adopt a confident, nationalist tone emphasizing American exceptionalism, expressing pride in the United States as a force for good in the world, and advocating for an America that is once again respected (and, in some quarters, feared) as the preeminent global power.

“A father FIGHTS FOR SURVIVAL his two daughters nearly go deaf after the deadly Texas fertility plant explosion”

“Derrick Hurtt Says He & Daughters Are OK Luckily, the family left the scene unharmed — a miracle, considering the blast killed at least 15 people.”

How do you reconcile these two sentences?

VERY shoddy “journalism”.
