They must be poorly trained firefighters if they:

1) were inside the home, talking to the victim, and didn't notice that the van was about to "burst into flames".

2) couldn't put the flames out before the poor victim died.

3} didn't get the fire out even after the victim died and they had to return to the scene.

It cracks me up how there is always someone out there ready to criticize the situation or someone involved in a tragedy. Prayers go out to the little boys that they will both heal and are o.k. Prayers to the family who lost their home and sympathies to the wife of the man that was driving the van. It sounds like they were working on getting the man out of the van and since not every story tells every detail and step that a rescuer makes...that doesn't mean they are poorly trained firefighters. Shame on you JusticeWONK!

Unless you have been there. Don't question what they did. They victim as you call him probably shouldn't have been driving with his health problems. I'm sorry he died but glad they saved to two young victims.

Yea, prayers and stupidity we get it.
My question is where was the COMMON SENSE?
You get out of the hospital 2 days prior from a (what any doctor would consider) a dangerous heart condition, and you should avoid lifting a half gallon of milk because of the stress on the heart. No, he's gotta get into a vehicle and spaz out on the road endangering others. Face it, the wife should have told him not to drive or she would drive.
Ask yourself the question, if you have a dangerous heart condition, are you gonna go for a ride in the car? Or are you gonna stay home and try to be calm and heal?
I’m interested in your answers if they're honest.

Thank God the kids are ok.
The numbers of cars and trucks running into houses lately are ridiculous.
Youre not even safe in your own home anymore :(

I would have enough common sense to keep my butt at home. I hope the kids get alot of money from the pending lawsuit.. If it was my kids and house I would have this lady in court quicker then you can say. "Heart failure"..

You're absolutely right Joe, The wife should have had better sense that to let her husband drive this soon. he should have been home and this would not have happened. Tragic indeed.

However, with that being said, my prayers go out to all involved.

This is devastating and all you can think about is a pending law suit? Yes I agree, the man should not have been driving...but he also paid the ultimate price for his mistake! Now, he has a family grieving his loss..isn't that enough? The boys are going to make it, the home can be rebuilt, but the life of this man can not be brought back. You need to grow up and not be so quick to judge. And as for the firefighters on the scene- again, so quick to judge. Do you dedicate your life to protecting your community? If so, then you know there are steps to be taken before acting at a scene such as this. But my guess would be that no, you don't have a job such as this. If you did, you wouldn't be so cold hearted. It takes a person with a lot of heart to do the job they do, and it's quite obvious some of you don't have one! May the driver RIP, may his family have strength to get through this, and may the family whose home was involved find the strength to rebuild and move forward. And to the firefighters on the scene-thank you for dedicating yourselves to protecting your community!

To those of you blaming the wife, give it a rest. She very likely told him not to drive and he ignored her. People don't always listen to good advice because they're stubborn.

Exactly as your screen names says ... you are a Sponge Bob! Typical white trash looking for easy money, that's why our insurance is outrageous because every idiot like you is lawsuit happy! Never mind the feelings of both parties involved, let's just blog about how you hope they take this poor WIDOW to the cleaners. You are pathetic!

Why are you all blaming the wife? He is old enough to be responsible for himself. As a wife, I can speak until I am blue in the face, my opinion on what my husband should and shouldn't be doing, however the bottom line is he will do what he wants. I cannot babysit him. So for those of you blaming the wife, that is ridiculous. This was a TRAGIC ACCIDENT. He paid with his life and that is so extremely sad. I am very happy to hear the boys are ok. I am also heartbroken for the loss of their home. Overall this whole situation is tragic and my prayers go out to both sides of the story because it is very terrible. A love loss and a loss of a home and all the rest in between.

Question, is the Hospital/Doctors at fault because they were aware of his condition which almost led to the death of two boys? Bet they find a way out of this, right?!.
