Exploding Power Line

It's those unexpected situations that can often become the most amazing and memorable. About two years ago, WHO-TV 13's Photographer Lee Rouse, a Grundy Center native, was shooting video of an assistant fire chief in Urbandale following a snow storm. All of a sudden, the transformer exploded. The video (and Lee, of course) has now been part of two national specials, the first on MSNBC and now this week on the Discovery Channel. The video is below, along with the raw video posted on YouTube. That video has been viewed nearly 1 million times already!
