Three People Injured, One Critically, by Electrical Vault Explosion

Expect the Unexpected.

This unlucky person was on the sidewalk in front of the CSS Social Security Clinic in Santa Ana where she was employed, when an explosion in an underground electrical vault blew the access covers off causing major injuries. First reports indicated she had died.

I was wondering if there were two victims because the one in the video clearly is a woman. You can tell by the shoe. The video shows no one coming to her aid, just running around shouting. No wonder she's in delicate condition.
