I saw that, the foot was gone.

I suppose a warning is warranted.

If I was him, I could not care less about being on TV at that point

I'll spoiler this in case anyone is squeamish

 
It looked like both his legs were missing from just below the knee. His lower left leg was definitely missing, but for nearly the entire length of his tibia which was completely exposed. Really horrible. No idea how the guy was still conscious

Nothing the news does is accidental.

And thank you for spoilering whatever it was you spoilered.

There are reports on local news
 
of several people with lost limbs, some having lost both legs, one victim as young as 3
the kind of thing that tickles Mikal's funny bone apparently.

Please stay on topic. These kinds of posts are insensitive.

I've found the only thing I can do at times like these is look to the first responders and find some hope in their bravery, selflessness, and professionalism.

It looked like they were just running a stock loop. I haven't seen it again since the first time. It's also the CBC; they're not really that sort of news channel.

And you're welcome

Patton Oswalt (at least it was attributed to him in a friend's facebook post. I didn't look into it or share it) made a great statement about this very thing
