Seven schoolkids and six adults are being treated for minor injuries, with 70 firefighters and paramedics on the scene, the newspaper reported. However, KTLA reports the number is seventeen children and nine adults.

“L.A. City Fire spokesperson Nicholas Prange said two classes were outside when the liquid rained down shortly before noon. Students and staff were instructed to go indoors and remain there for the time being,” the LA Times reported. “The jet landed safely at LAX soon after. Police could be seen driving behind the plane with sirens wailing as it arrived.”

KTLA identified the plane as a Delta Air Lines Boeing 777.

Despite concerns about spreading the coronavirus and starting wildfires, Trump insisted on having a fireworks-heavy celebration at Mount Rushmore in South Dakota, which was clearly a campaign rally no matter how much the taxpayers were bilked for it.
