    They try to edit the footage that is released if possible because they don`t want people seeing their relatives die on youtube (or liveleak in this case).

    On a side note, your post confused me by starting with "lol" and ending with "i can not imagine the loss they felt".

    "Why why why is the share button above play? Why/"
    @bibinos, get mozilla firefox or google chrome, it`s something to do with the java app in safari and internet exp. i`m running firefox and the share button is above the video itself, knowhere near the play button

    Nitro, why you trolling so hard these days? If you want to get banned, you just have to ask. Or even easier, just don`t come to the site anymore.

    "Honestly I would stay as close as I can due to the lives you could save. Stay as close as safety allows, then move in for what help you can give. In a situation like that, people were not given much time to save those that were not quite fast enough.

    I can`t even imagine what would be like to experience what they experienced. Being in such danger, seeing people being crushed like that; or even see in first hand all your belongings and the streets you always knew being washed away by such a powerful force.

    It is a reminder that, no matter how some of us dislike our house or feel unfortunate... At least we didn`t experience that.

    absolutely tragic. Incredible footage, but I wish somebody had carried the old man. He was holding on to the wall, then probably drowned. I realise thousands, like him, were lost. Really sad.

    @ Pandabee... breaks my heart, but I don`t think things went well for him, possibly the reason why the video cuts out. So tragic
