Somewhere off from Hills Road.

I don't know.

This is an emergency broadcast issued

Oh, Jesus.

You're hurt.

- Emilie, you're hurt.

- I'm fine.

Okay, uh...

Tell me what to do, all right?

How do I... how do I fix it?

You can't.

I love you, Jim.

No. No. No, no, no, no, no.

Okay, we're gonna fix you, all right?

I'm gonna get you to a hospital,

Okay? So just... Emilie, hold on.


Emilie, wake up!

Wake... Wait...

Try not... to Montgomery County.

Well, according to live witnesses

regarding the recent events

currently taking place in Montgomery

County, where an explosion has happened.

We're trying our best

to bring you new information,

but we really don't know

what is going on.

Earlier this morning,

at approximately 7:30, reports came in

that there was an explosion

on the outskirts of Montgomery County.

Now, we don't know if this was an act

of terrorism or merely an accident.

It's too early to say at this point.

To hopefully fill us in on what is going

on, we'll go live to one of our analysts

whos reporting to us via satellite phone

from just outside Montgomery County.

Bill, are you there?

Uh, yes, Amy, thank you.

Uh, we don't know much as of right now.

All that we can tell you is

the military isn't letting

anybody in or out of the county.

In fact, it's quite frightening that...

...military officials and helicopters,

literally coming from every direction.

...appearing out of nowhere, and

they're not telling us what's going on.

Cell phone communication

seems to be down.

Landline phones only seem to be working

within the county.

This is believed to be

a part of the military's procedure

in quarantining this town.

Now, we've been hearing

that there is smoke visible.

Can you fill us in on that?

Uh, yes, I'm standing

just on the outside

of the western border of Montgomery

County and when I look towards the east,

I see a massive cloud of smoke

coming from the ground.

Now I can only guess...

that's what is causing this panic.

I-I've noticed that

the military is wearing gas masks.

They're actually rounding up reporters

to leave the area.

And, uh, quite frankly...

I am trying to get...

Hold on, hold on one second, Amy.

There's something happening.

- There's a man walking towards us.

- Bill, are you there?

Uh, there's a man walking towards us

right now, with nothing on...

Oh, my God.


They just... they just shot a guy

that was trying to cross...

Oh, my God!

Hey, what's going on? What happened?


Bill, talk to us, please.

Can somebody tell me what's going on?

...a large number of military aircraft

taking off from Clark County Airport.

Uh, which is a bordering county

to Montgomery County.

I'm standing just south of

the airport's main runway, and I'm so...

...all around me. Uh, they're starting

to take off, and I'm starting to see

helicopters in every direction,

as they rise to the skies around me.

Uh, suddenly, some are beginning

to now appear off a distance, and, uh,

I would guess it has to be restrictive

to aircraft, uh, airborne at this time.

There're so many that I can't even count

them all. It truly is a fascinating...



Is somebody behind there?

I know somebody's in there!
