Sheriff Larry Blanton was not a first responder in an emergency situation; instead he was a witness. It happened Tuesday in Nashville, Tennessee when a gas explosion rocked the Gaylord Opryland Hotel.  At the "National Sheriff's Association Conference." He says it was tough not to jump in and help with the emergency

“One of the things, you know, when you’re used to running towards problems, it’s hard to run away from problems. But very early on you had the faith and confidence of the professionals taking care of the situations, that you just had to be a victim for a while, and let the trained professionals take care of it.  We’re not trained that way; we’re trained to take case of the situation and dive into action.  But it was very obvious early on that there were qualified professionals here.”  Blanton says it was a miracle that no one was hurt in the explosion. There were several conventions going on at the time, and it was in an area where people were constantly coming and going.  Guests were allowed back in Wednesday morning. Damage to the building was estimated at less than $750,000.
