Beirut Blast: The explosion that stole a nation's hope | Four Corners



#trauma #coronavirus #blast video #investigation #News & Politics
Two months ago, a massive explosion rocked Lebanon's capital, killing hundreds, injuring thousands, and sending a shock wave that damaged buildings across the city.
As the explosion occurred, people around Beirut captured the moment, and its aftermath, on their phones.
Four Corners pieces together the story of the blast, tracking down many of the people who filmed the disaster, as well as those who were dramatically shown on screen.
In a city with so many connections to Australia, the pain and grief are immense.

The kid dying was absolutely horrible, but those 10 firefighters that went in blind is infuriating knowing the people in charge of that port knew of its dangers.

"It became normal to see people in this part of the world suffering - it´s not ok" - what a powerful sentence!

Storing fireworks next to explosive chemicals is cartoonishly stupid. Homer Simpson levels of incompetence.

The explosion is so huge and perfectly formed, it’s like it’s straight out of a movie with the vapor cloud and the pressure wave blasting out the windows.

Very heartbreaking. Isaac dying was awful, but the part that truly broke my heart was when Hala was saying the people of Beirut were already suffering and made to suffer even more.

The fact that everyone was like: "this is Lebanon, What would you expect?"
Is just.... Unimaginably horrible to think about
