Pulling Together After Tragedy

Neighbors assisted rescue crews by pulling water hoses to extinguish fires that burned for nearly three hours on Sunday, and they brought jugs of water to the crash site while emergency teams raced to find adequate water supply. Emergency crews were forced to commandeer water trucks from nearby construction sites. Crowded roads near the crash site further slowed down response time. (Photo: REUTERS/Akintunde Akinleye)
