An "innocent" campfire doesn't blow up on it own...someone put something in the fire. The only innocent are the unsupervised kids that got hurt.
RonRam...
Along with others who responded to this post...I know these people and have heard the story. They ARE in fact wonderful people with wonderful kids, who are devastated and sick over what happened Friday night! This was in no way "unsupervised". A parent was there. Do not be so quick to pass judgement on others when you do not know the facts and were not there. Treat others as you would like to be treated. Family and friends were around a campfire, and yes, there has to be a reason why the explosion occured. Something WAS in that firepit, but it was not put there intenionally.

“Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”

Thoughts and prayers are with this family and those injured. They do not deserve these comments and judgements being made.

To everyone reading this, I am very good friends with Larry Corso and John Rubino. Two of the several kids injured. Larry is recovering well and so is John. John lost his eye, and had to have brain surgery. He's at UIC hospital right now and mmore information will be given to me about what they will do about his eye. He's doing good though and expected to make a fun recovery.

This was an innocent bonfire.
The person that said that something could have been left over from fouth of July made a good point. But that's not the case because the fire was burning for nearly 2 hours before it blew up.

I've been hearing that the Corso's had some left over fireworks, and they had a big fire cracker that would have been used in one of those gigantic fire work displays. If that's true, then I can see John and Larry tossing that in to see what happens.

It would help so much if you could just say a prayer for these kids. They need your help. They need everyone's help and I miss them so much and I want them to come home.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
