Guess he never saw the movie titled Backdraft. Loved that scene. “Ah, these moments do try me”.

there is no debate about using the other outlet. its too sharp of an angle. they did the right thing. if theres any debate they could have ran the hose over the hood of the car.

They could also just it ram it out of the way with the very heavy fire truck. Send a bill for damage to the truck to the owner

Bad enough situation without the infantile cameraman taking such obvious pleasure in it.

I bet it was a fireman… I also bet that the firemen made sure the water drained into the car too!

Duh, the other hose attachment is for a 1.5 inch line. Not the larger line needed for the fire. Numbskulls

Good, serves the prick.

After extinguishing the fire, the firemen should have punch a hole in the hose inside the POS’ car for good measure.

Why ruin the hose? Just let it ‘drain’ as they pull it through the window.

Looks like this was a 6 inch diameter hose, which can carry 1000 GPM or more. Engines carry a 30 to 50 ft length of this hose, so they can get all the water they need from one connection. And the connection must be made quickly- it is just one of many things that must be done upon arrival at a fire scene. The hydrant had only one connection of this size- aimed at the NO PARKING ZONE. Trying to route the hose around the car would have kinked it, or required more hose than was immediately available. Firemen carry multi- purpose axes for a reason- they solve lots of problems.

This is propaganda to try to convince us that NYC government is fair and righteous.

It is a truly nasty, inhumane place.

Legitimately running that hose through would have been downright therapeutic.

that was just new york mean. That said the driver shouldn’t park there. That said the city should do something about the parking situation in new york. That said they’ll screw it up. That said don’t move to new york but if you do, don’t park in front of a hydrant.

I mean.. I am from Florida but is it just me or does anyone think there was plenty of room to get that firehose to the hydrant no issues without busting both that guys windows… New York City one of the biggest..crowded..pandemic..= super available parking spots I take it?? or is there another use for that parking space I’m misunderstanding? I feel like abc is busting peoples windows to get their viewers attention away from Biden killing our economy.

I Mean….I mean … yes It’s just you.. Please don’t embarrass Florida. There’s NO argument you can make it’s A G A I N S T the law… I mean, I mean……. When you park in front of a hydrant ……you are saying I don’t care about anyone but my self.. Really You can’t be that stupid… Florida does NOT have anyone that stupid. Really where are you from CA ?? I mean, I mean.. Why don’t you tell us all what you mean. This time try using logic, reasoning… BTW.. It won’t work either… P.S. I have a great idea, travel to and live in NYC. The mayor could use a few wordily wise staffers on his payroll.

No, it is not just you.
The hose had a kink on the other side of the car. The fire track should have pulled forward 10-15 feet resulting in a nice clean arc from fire hydrant to the truck; it would place firehose on the hood of the car, there was no need to break windows.
A parking ticket would have been sufficient penalty for car owner.

Thank goodness ABC news is doing tough investigative journalism. Couldn’t let Tic Tok handle this one.

I saw this happen in NYC with a car with DPL plates.
Crowd cheered.
Of course some people would prefer that the firemen find the owner and say “pretty please.”

Well they won’t be returning at 4am to strip it, or move it to a chop shop. Must have been concerned re hidden GPS.

The confusion lies in that they were in NYC, where civilization has long been absent.

I wonder if the firemen had as big a smile on there faces busting those windows out as I do now watching this.

In 1989, we went to see the film, “Field of Dreams” at a Manhattan movie theatre.

It was quite enjoyable, but I derived much more satisfaction from what was witnessed by chance, after stepping out of the theatre for a cigarette (probably driven out by the mega-annoying Amy Madigan), & then going into the bar next door.

Things weren’t quiet for long.

New York City fire trucks pulled up — something was going up in a moderate blaze across the street — & before long, firemen were screaming at someone who had illegally parked next to a fire hydrant on our side of the street.

Before she showed up, the bartender was rooting — fiendishly, and, come to think of it, so was I — for the firemen to smash through two of her side windows in order to run their empty hose through the interior of the car in order to be able to hook it up to the hydrant.

We were both quite disappointed when, a minute later, the car’s owner, holding a king’s ransom in merchandise bulging out of shopping bags, came running towards us.

For someone who didn’t look a day over fifty facelifts, she was pretty spry for her age.

Remarkably, her blasphemous native language — you could hear all this through the restaurant’s pane-glass window! — was exactly the same brand of spontaneous, high-octane dialogue being deployed by the vociferous firemen.

Quickly realizing that the smoke eaters were about to resolve this lively debate in their irrevocable favor by axing her vehicle into shards, she broke off combat after flinging her bags into her car with the velocity of a siege gun & made her escape.

I went back to watch the rest of the movie.

I grew up in NYC and it was common knowledge that the FDNY would bust your windows to run hose if you blocked a hydrant.

Doesn’t Matter

In the Fire Academy you are legit taught to bust the Windows out of a car blocking a fire hydrant when connecting the 6in Main Supply line. There is no time to dick around and ponder, well can this way or that way work.

The other Hydrant outlet is for a tactical/cover line, smaller in diameter and not connected to the Engine (Fire Truck). The NYFD had no other options here and they are protected by the laws in making this decision. Facts don’t have feelings, nor do they care about feelings. They are pretty cut and dry.
