Hello Warriors,

in a fire range 24 miles east of Bend, Oregon, 2 people have died by an explosion inside an M18 Hellcat.

"One of the victims was still alive (when police arrived), and they were able to speak with that victim," "Bend Fire Department did attempt life-saving efforts on that victim, but the victim died." Sheriff Shane Nelson said.

The incident got caught on video which as taken by the authorities to learn what took place and why.
It was most likely the gun breach that blew and probably the first time in awhile someone had to clean the crew out of a WW2 Tank.

Names and other details were not released.

My deepest condolences to the families and friends.
