World news is one of the best ways to let the world know about what's happening everywhere else. It also warns and lets us know if something is coming our way or if there are problems somewhere else. I chose an article that would really help affect everyone. Please read it!
The story I read was about a blast at a Bulgarian explosive plant that killed 15 workers and injured 3. It occurred because they were not following all of the safety procedures. Officials warned of safety breaches at the factory 2 months before the incident actually happened. The victim's families are devastated. The detonations were so powerful that they had to wait 24 hours before emergency services were able to go inside.
I think that they should've been following the correct procedures. This explosion proves just how dangerous explosives can be if you don't handle them right. I also think that they should've shut down the plant 2 months ago when they first started having safety breaches. They should have stricter rules about handling these things. I am sad that 15 people died but I am also mad that they didn't do the right procedures.
We should care about this because an explosion like this could happen anywhere. All it takes is not paying attention and doing something wrong. I want everyone all over the world to always have safety checks. Also to make sure that their workers know how to operate and use everything in a safe way. I hope that people read this article and really take this seriously.
A devastated family member.
