Eyewitnesses to Jakarta blasts

After explosions at two U.S.-based hotels in Jakarta, Indonesia, citizen journalists were on the scene showing some of the earliest images of the aftermath.

 

iReporter gwoolste was an eyewitness who was staying in an apartment nearby and said he heard the blasts as they occurred. First, he saw smoke coming out of the JW Marriott. Then, as he ran down to the ground floor of his place, he heard a big explosion at the Ritz-Carlton and noticed that the windows were blown out by the street.

 

He said he took a look at the hotel lobby and spotted injured people being taken out. Among the wreckage, he also saw what he believes to be a "mutilated" body on the ground. He described the scene as "total devastation."

 

"All the furniture was blown everywhere, fixtures hanging from the ceiling."

 

Another iReporter, Earthstone , described an "eerie silence" after the blast at the Ritz Carlton. He grabbed his binoculars and watched people the scene from his apartment nearby.

 

“Some guests were leaving out of the hotel with their belongings and bags from the front door crossing the scene of the blast. Security staff was helping the guests to leave in an orderly manner."

 

We're still monitoring the scene in Jakarta. Are you there? Share your photos and video. Comment below with your thoughts.

The incident was terrible. Many were seriously wounded, died, and many properties have been dilapidated. It will hard to recover with the mysterious explosion at the two U.S.-based hotels in Jakarta, Indonesia. On the other hand, they will need a little financial help for the recovery of everything that has been damaged. You can try a personal loan application for a payday cash advance for this emergency funding instead of a personal loan application in a back which is lengthy, time consuming and takes to long to have the results.
