A couple of soon to be, ex firefighters get blown out of the windows of a Shanghai high rise. They got thrown out of the building when an explosion erupted. I wonder if this had anything to do with those boom-booms in Xinjiang…

Excerpt

Two young firefighters were killed in Shanghai’s Xuhui district yesterday after a blast blew them out of a 13th floor window while they were controlling a blaze from inside the building. In their final moments, the two firefighters were seen holding on to eachother mid-air before landing on a platform below.
