Not Helping

Jesusfuck but the helicopter footage looks bad. Chrunchy old chch eh?

Have had reports from the whanau: the sister has a bruised back from being thrown into the wall at work and affianced brotherinlaw was under the ANZ building in the fucking cathedral square, grabbed a tree and had the ground open up right in front of him, showered with glass from above. Grabbed a mate and a car, picked up the sister and peeled off home. Left all his shit in the building.

They're obviously still in shock, not much sinking in. Power back on in Avonhead, sketchy Internet access.

Footage of the rescue efforts, international now, coming through from the Canterbury TV building - visuals of blood splattered, sheet wrapped bodies pulled from wreckage and being stacked in a clear bit of land. This can hardly be helping.

I doubt the city will be sleeping.
