Witness describes surviving the Nashville explosion

Witness describes surviving the Nashville explosion 1

 

Betsy Williams recalls being awoken just after 4:30 a.m. Friday by what sounded like gunfire from an automatic weapon.
After Williams called 911 and police cordoned off Second Avenue in downtown Nashville, a "computerized message" from a parked RV captured her attention.
"Evacuate now," Williams remembers the female voice saying — over and over again.
Williams told CNN hours after the vehicle exploded, injuring three, that she and wife Kim clearly heard another message emanating from the RV.
It was a countdown.
"This vehicle will explode in 15 minutes," the countdown said, according to Williams.
Then, "This vehicle will explode in 14 minutes."
The countdown caused Williams and her family to immediately heed the warning and start making their way downstairs from their third-floor apartment.
"When the time started, that's when we went, 'oh sh*t'," she said. "We need to get out of here."

    This was wrong, but I’m glad the people had a chance to get out.

  5. This lady is brilliant and courageous.
    She knows when to hold ’em, when to fold ’em.
    And she remembered and retold the story in excellent detail.
    Then she gives credit to others, while laughing at her misfortune.

    Imagine if you were deaf and you were walking by. Good thing no one was hurt.

    • @love Grace This election is rigged by Hugo Chavez and his dead soul period. Pat Robertson was told by God that Trump would win the 2020 election and my pastor already asked Jesus Christ about this and got confirmed and our church is praying for president Trump now. Just to be fair, President Trump should declare martial law and rerun the election guarded by military in states where he narrowly lost. This is Godland! We all should pray daily to prevent Chavez’s dead soul from rigging our election again.

      Ya but the big question is who makes something like this

    • Deaf people aren’t stupid. They are probably more observant than you are.

    • @PixzelByPixzel Jailed for life? Wouldn’t death penalty be better because then they can’t escape and then do it again.

    • @eddie hernandez There is never a USA like liberals claimed and lied about for more than 200 years, this is Godland, this is Trumpland, Trumpland is Godland. Trump is Godsend to save us and lead us to the path of eternal life. In Trump we trust, in Trump we worship, in Trump we united.

  9. This is the weirdest act of terror I’ve ever seen. It’s plain strange.

      @Garry Williams sure thing. You have been smoking too much kraken.

    • @raptured snail the writing is on the wall. People are preparing. You have no idea how thin the veil of civilization is. Hope your soy comfort was worth all this that’s about to start. Again you guys will feel the true nastiness of this. Not us out in the woods 😉

    • @Billbo Bro No it’s just basic US history. The old Dem party were southern conservatives and Rep were northern liberal. The south is still conservative and the north is more liberal. How do you not understand that? Are you just a cheerleader? I don’t see how anyone can’t understand such basic things.

    • @Billbo Bro Well I would implore you to rethink that and get a grip before you do something stupid that gets you killed. Just saying. Have you ever been in combat?

    • It’s a form of fear terrorism. My guess is they didn’t want to hurt anyone, but instead send a message

  10. This woman is amazing and the first responders that went into this.

  11. This is really odd to be honest. Glad she’s and others are okay.

    I’m so glad that people don’t think it’s a prank when they heard the computer voice . They just get out immediately . Thank God that they are safe .

    Hope they get caught and bring to justice. Sounds like domestic terrorist. “GOD BLESS AMERICA” ❤️🇺🇸

  14. Is this America today?
    IT IS WHAT IT ISN’T.

  15. Thank god a lot of people’s didn’t die . 🙏 those that was hurt will fully recover

  16. The gunshots most likely came from the RV’s loud speaker to get peoples initial attention.

    Sounds like execution and evidence destruction.

  18. She saved her cat. ❤️

  19. I love this woman! God bless this woman! Her coping mechanism are impeccable! Love her spirit

  20. This woman is the best witness ever, just a bit excited and Anderson had to keep her on task.
