Awesome party in Holt ends with a bang and three injured

johnboy 27 May 2012 23

ACT Policing is investigating an explosion at a house party in Holt overnight (Saturday, 26 May) which left three people injured.

Around 12.40pm Police were notified by ACT Ambulance Service (ACTAS) that they were attending an address in Holt in response to a woman with burns. Police had earlier attended the same address in relation to a number of noise complaints stemming from a party at that address and had been required to shut the party down.

When police re-attended the address, they identified three people who had suffered burns as a result of an explosion. Witnesses told police that an item had been thrown into a drum in the rear yard of the property causing the explosion.

ACTAS attended and treated a woman with burns to her legs, arms and face. Two men were also treated for burns to their lower legs. All three people were taken to the Canberra Hospital for further treatment to their injuries.

A number of witnesses were identified and are currently assisting police with the investigation into the cause of the explosion.

If you were at or around the party we’d love to hear about it.

why weren’t the casualties sent to Calvary public?!

Maybe they wanted some advise on contraception along with their burns treatment.

Maybe you need to grow the F*** up… The teens injured are actually really good kids as i know them personally so how about you take into account the actual damage that was done and how this has changed their lives forever especially when one had only turned 18 a couple of weeks earlier you idiot

Just wondering if these are the same good kids who have made that street a misery for the last 5 months or so with thumping bloody bass weekend after weekend and when it takes the fancy, the odd weeknight as well. Same good kids that allow it to go on way past 12 when it does happen and often to sun up or the early early hours. Same bunch who have no consideration for the neighbours immediately behind who have young kids and have to put up with the non stop foulest language often being yelled and screamed. I live in the area and thankfully not immediately next to or behind as even a street away the thumping music and the yelling and language etc dies my head in, so no you must be talking about another bunch of good kids!

Good kids tend to be not so flammable.

Might have been a case of the good old unopened beer can or baked bean can in the fire trick. The backed bean can is a laugh wakes the party up thats for sure.

Look, I suspect that if I understood a word that “One” said I would find him a deeply unlikeable person.

Definitely worth flame of the week!

yea one is certainly a bit odd

Does complete lack of comprehensive writing classify for a flame of the week or does it need more capitals and random swearing?

After the burns in Queanbeyan last year and now this is it safe to stand next to the fire drum at parties?

Police cant prove a thing – is there any CCTV of the request being made?

If you didn’t just wake from a cave then you would know that police have reading, writing, and communication issues. Yes they lie to get a job done – helps mates become members – you know the rest.

So lets put this one down to the Bottle Shop and TurnKey policing along with their political parties. Least the HSU members had something else to worry about while giving treatment, instead of thinking about them selves.

Here’s a question: Ambo’s wont visit any address if its marked on the system that there are drugs, grog, or issues relating to violence like a party – they will wait up the road for up to an hour for the police escort to arrive.

So lets review

Police attend, mark down party without booze?
later the system sends Ambo’s who arrive without a police escort??

Perhaps pink pigs can grow wings and fly without GM food.

Looks like a two tier system – was it Social or Private Housing?

Good god, to call you retarded is an insult to retarded people.

Wut

Where you the one who caused the explosion?

I think “One” was definitely at the party, or a party, or thinks they were at a party but have just lost the plot big time.

Is there any CCTV of the request being made…. request of what? I’m guessing you might have been at the party? If not your foaming at the mouth rabid response is quite funny. We can pull apart the media release if you want;

ACTAS called Police, said we are going to a party because of an explosion.

Police turn up, find three people injured, call ACTAS, they turn up.

Police spoke to people about the explosion.

Now obviously they communicate all right, because I understand what happened, I wasn’t there.

Let’s pull apart your post.

—-If you didn’t just wake from a cave then you would know that police have reading, writing, and communication issues.—- I think you may very well be THE pot that called the kettle black, but we can come back to this if you want.

—-Yes they lie to get a job done – helps mates become members – you know the rest.—- So a random Police bashing sentence, that has nothing to do with the original post, good good, they lie to get a job done, what was the lie in the above release and what did they hope to achieve from the lie? The help mates become members, this is probably because their “mates” aren’t people like you, so that is probably a positive more then anything.

—-So lets put this one down to the Bottle Shop and TurnKey policing along with their political parties. Least the HSU members had something else to worry about while giving treatment, instead of thinking about them selves.—- I umm, well I’m at a loss, either you missed a couple of sentences, words or your drunk, if you can re-read that and it makes sense, then you are a moron. Harsh, I know, but it’s the truth.

—-Here’s a question: Ambo’s wont visit any address if its marked on the system that there are drugs, grog, or issues relating to violence like a party – they will wait up the road for up to an hour for the police escort to arrive.—- That sounds quite sensible to me, if I was an ambo who was going to an address that has an alert on the system that requires a Police escort, then I’d wait to, let the Police deal with the maniac and go home at the end of a shift, that is called smart work.

—-So lets review—- Yes let’s review.

—-Police attend, mark down party without booze?—- Are you typing from a phone by chance? Was this supposed to say, Police attend, close down party when there was no alcohol? I don’t see what the problem is there, if it is ruining the tranquillity of the rest of the neighbourhood and there are fears that someone will get hurt if it is allowed to continue, then why should they not close it down? I mean their fears were correct, some wanker threw something on the fire which injured three people.

—-later the system sends Ambo’s who arrive without a police escort??—- I wonder if the Police and the Ambulance use the same “system.” Hmmm

—-Perhaps pink pigs can grow wings and fly without GM food.—- I don’t remember this little pig. GM food, as in the food that people feed Commodores? I’ve been told on good authority the best way to get wings is Redbull.

—-Looks like a two tier system – was it Social or Private Housing?—- Two tier system? Bloody oath it is. I wouldn’t want to walk into a druggies house to help them, after the chose to take drugs, then over dosed, specially if it has a warning on the system to say the last time that ambulance officers tried to help them they became abusive towards the officers. You don’t get it do you champ? Ambo’s are there to help, they don’t take away peoples liberty like the Police, they don’t charge people with offences, they don’t give out speeding fines or shut down parties. They help people, whether the person deserves it or not. If that means that occasionally they need to call Police for help and make a piece of shit wait 10 minutes before they get help, because of something they did to the ambo’s last time, then so be it. It’s called consequences to actions, you don’t like it, move to Syria and find out how hard life can be.

Brilliant!! Took the words right out of my mouth

just a guess but i’d say the burns were quite serious and there is probably more specialised care available at woden than calvary

Isn’t that because TCH has a dedicated minor burns unit? Anything major has to go to Sydney?
