HARTFORD, Conn. — A Hartford fire station is under investigation because of a video posted on YouTube.
The video shows kids jumping off a roof into a snow bank after the blizzard and the fire chief wants to know if his firefighters took the video and why they did nothing to stop it.
The YouTube video was taken from a second-story window at Park and Affleck in Hartford after the weekend blizzard and a group behind the camera cheers on the kids as they jumped from the roof of the city library into deep snowbanks that cover the sidewalks. They even commented on possible injuries.
