A 57-year-old New York man was filmed being engulfed by flames in Queens when he was walking down the sidewalk when it exploded. The man’s name is Barry West and he said it, “hurt like hell” and some of his skin was burned, thankfully he’s expected to survive.
This is nuts! A sidewalk explosion in St Albans, Queens. Thankfully, the brother is OK and recovering.
