Last night we were sent a (photo) posting that showed firefighters on the scene of what looked like a situation with a “firefighters down.” It wasn’t clear but it turned out to be a violent apparatus crash that occurred in Ecuador….as you will see on the below videos.
Now we know what happened. This morning we were advised that the Firefighters there (in South America) did survive. According to “Esdebomberox” on Instagram, he wrote us that “a fire truck suffered the loss of its brakes and collided with two other units”..and that..”the firefighters/bomberos-suffered only minor injuries”
Phew. Close Call.
Glad all are ok…an example of the fact that we never know what is approaching…when we are operating on roadways…including other emergency apparatus.
