FFS,

Look at the guy with the Police jacket on the motorcycle running instead of doing something useful.

Chill.

It was barely 1 second after he was closer than 100m to a huge explosion. I think running wasn't an unforgivable reaction.

That's true. Maybe he came back afterwards and did his job.

Guy in the white shirt at the epicenter clearly doesn't make it...
Meum est propositum in taberna mori,
ut sint Guinness proxima morientis ori.
tunc cantabunt letius angelorum chori:
"Sit Deus propitius huic potatori."
