Manchester House Explosion In Blackley Leaves Two ‘Seriously Injured’

Post by Thorin on Mon Jan 16, 2017 6:58 pm

Two people have been rushed to hospital after a house exploded in Manchester, also injuring a kitten. The North West Ambulance Service said both people taken to hospital were “seriously injured” after the explosion all but destroyed the house in the Blackley area of the city. As well as the two taken to Salford Royal Hospital, three other people were being treated at the scene for minor injuries. Firefighters said they rescued a kitten from the debris and it was “being very well looked after”.

Station Commander Merl Forrer, incident commander for Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service, said: “We are currently shoring up the property and using dogs to search the scene to ensure nobody is trapped inside.

“The building is partially collapsed and we are working effectively with partners to determine a cause of the explosion.

What does your boss say when you question everything he says?

"Thomas! Get a cup of coffee on my desk asap!"

"I would boss...but the coffee machine has been photoshopped and the coffee is coming out wonky and due to non-global warming the coffee is frozen sir! And if you look at the coffee cups closely you can see the lines don't match up!!!"

"Thomas you're FUCKING fired"

Two men are injured, one critically. The man with the less serious injuries has been charged with intent to endanger lives.

The kitten that was also hurt in the gas explosion is said to be being well cared for.

A local café is collecting donations of clothes, toiletries and money for the family next door, a couple with two young children. They have had to leave their home with just the clothes they were wearing yesterday.
