    Explosion puts friend in hospital....

    Howard Swan Jr., 20, of Moriah was listed in fair condition Monday at Fletcher Allen Health Care in Burlington.
    This is a good friend of mine. Although he is only 18, not 20.

    This article makes it sound better than it is.

    Actually, he may lose vision in 1 eye and is undergoing multiple sugery's (He is in one as I type this)

    Thought I would share....

    My thoughts and prayers are with your friend.

    Just out of curiousity, why on earth were they using black powder to blast that ledge? There are far safer explosives to use.

    Carp so sorry to hear what happen to your friend. I know it is hard to see a friend get hurt, and not much you can do about it. Though might want to tell your friend to stay away from black powder. A teacher of mine that I use to have in High School brother was killed because of black powder.

    Anyways I hope he does get better!

    As of now I only know his tear duct is completely gone and they will need to put in a tube for drainage.
