Shocking video of 2-year old Middle Village fire
From the NY Post:
Two human fireballs burst out a door and one collapses to the sidewalk, writhing in agony.
The other remains standing and runs into a deli for help -- trailing flames.
A terrified woman plunges to her death from a third-floor window to escape the inferno.
These horrifying scenes were all in a video shown yesterday to the Queens jury that will decide the fate of a woman who allegedly set her ex-boy friend on fire in a jealous rage and then accidentally torched herself.
As the astonishing video unreeled, Agnes Bermudez -- accused of killing ex-lover William Salazar in a horrific 2008 Father's Day blaze that also took the lives of three other people -- hunched her shoulders and wept as numbed jurors watched stone-faced.
The first nightmarish frames show the couple bursting out of the three- story building on 69th Street near Metropolitan Avenue in Middle Village and Bermudez, 50, falling to the ground.
