Damn that’s horrible :c


Please don’t tell me these were people who refused to leave.


Given that the police was still servicing the area, I would suspect that this was not in an evac zone; but even if it was, the question is: did they refuse to leave or did they not have the means to leave?


How about we wait until the bodies are cold before we start trying to decide whether to blame the victims or not?


I was thinking more about the child, who had no choice either way. Obviously, it’s tragic regardless, but I’d hate to think they had the means to leave and didn’t.


Agreed, I was trying to get that point across in a subtle way.


I was wondering if by chance the woman happened to be this woman:


How awful.
