    You should have censored this video or put a trigger warning on it.

    Thinking of and praying for this young man. He lost an awful lot of blood. It’s a shame the young man who tried to help him was so traumatized and dropped him. Every second counts in a fire situation like this. He was left bleeding profusely and trying to stand up on a foot that wasn’t there anymore. I hope someone applied compression to the wound immediately.

    Saying prayers for not just the victim, but all those around him as well. This was a horrifying event to witness and it will likely stay with many for a very long time.

      Unbelievable to see the guy dropped him but even after helping him up the man was so focused on telling everyone what’s happening rather than helping the man fully smh ..

      I pray this young man heals soon and returns home to his family…
