Actually, I can only see hostage situations in TV. But then this one is different. 2 days ago, when I was on my way home, I saw this incident. I was so curious that I stayed to check it out for a while. And there, I was observing everything around the area. Of course, the media men are present for they are covering the event. What I feel during that time is that, I feel very concerned because he victims are the little, innocent ones. I always prayed for their safety. Though I wanted to stay, but then I have to go home for my family might get worried. Somehow, when I reached home, I heard that the hostage crisis was over. Whew!

Hmm, i don't know if you could consider this a hostage crisis, but there was this time when i was 15, a local crazy went up the bus which i was on at the time and he brandish a really large chopper. He swung it around in the bus but luckily nobody got struck. All of the passengers bailed out except for the driver, which the crazy had at chopper point. I was out of the bus, and last thing i saw was, the bus moved forward, with only the crazy and the driver in it. Then it stopped for like, 5 minutes or so. A few toughs then crept up the bus, but then the bus moved again for a 100 meters or so, and then i saw the driver jumped out from the driver's side and the toughs then rushed in with sticks and iron rods. I assumed the crazy was subdued and whupped at the moment the bus was rushed. Sounds more like a hijacking but the driver did got held for a good 5 minutes or so.

I have never seen anything like this except on t.v and would never want to be there to witness anything such as this . I would have a migraine for the whole day as I would be so worried about what the final outcome would be not to mention how horrible you would feel for the family and friends waiting to hear about their loved ones .
