EAST BOSTON -- A man who ignored a fire hydrant put Boston firefighters at risk Wednesday night. The man who parked his new BMW in front of a fire hydrant slowed the battle to save East Boston homes.



As CBS Boston reports, firefighters were forced to smash the windows and thread the fire hose through the car.

I think this is funny and I don't blame the firefighters at all for doing this, they have to keep the hose as straight as possible. Which they still had to bounce it away from the curb to get a kink out of the hose. Guess he thought he could park wherever he wanted. Maybe next time he will avoid parking close to a hydrant. It could have been much worse than two broken windows and a big dent not to mention a $100,00 fine.

Saw this doing rounds on Imgur for the last two-three days and it's obviously completely reasonable as to why they had to do it and it's illegal! What an inconsiderate prick!

Boston is the last place any emergency crew would accommodate an idiot like that.

I sadly doubt however that it will change how this person behaves behind the wheel.

If they couldn't have accessed the hydrant in time and someone died in the fire I wonder if they would have charged him for manslaughter? The way I see it he got off easy.
