The kids that got hurt were my best friends Kade Swartz, Michael Divinsenso, and Isiah Mann were playing right behind the house that exploded in girard. Two of them went to the hospital and were ok and the other was fine to. there house is gone and I was talking to them and they said some details that I dont want to say but what they all said the same one thing and that was "We are luky to be here today because of thet trajic incident". Then they started cring. Then I had to go.

i hear people talking about how the ladies made it out ok. does anyone know who helped them get out before the house torched to the ground. some people said they seen men carrying them out but i havent seard any names. any idea? ud think the mayor would go personally thank those who helped the ladies out because they did save some lives. if it were girard cops or fire fighters who went in a demolished house to save people they would get honors all over the place. gotta love girard politics
