Metal Manufacturing Plant Explodes In Bedford, Ohio; Casualties Reported
Posted For: Rotorblade
Monday afternoon in Bedford, Ohio was marked by a tragic event when an explosion occurred at the I Schumann & Co. metal manufacturing plant. The incident resulted in multiple casualties, with at least 14 people being hospitalized, including one individual in critical condition. Emergency services had to deploy several medical helicopters to the scene and most of the local fire departments responded as well.
The cause of the explosion is still unknown, but thick smoke could be seen billowing from the scene from nearby highways. It comes as Ohio already faces a difficult situation after a train derailment two weeks ago in East Palestine that necessitated a controlled detonation to get rid of toxic chemicals and created a huge dark plume of smoke that spread across social media platforms.
