Lebanon: CCTV captures dramatic moment blasts hit 5-star Beirut hotel

Subscribe to our channel! CCTV footage captured the dramatic moment the impact of the Beirut port blasts were felt in the 5-start Smallville Hotel, on Tuesday. Footage from the hotel recorded the moment the hotel lobby, restaurant and service areas were hit by the explosion, with several windows being shattered and people flying away due to the expansive wave. An injured person was seen being carried by several after the blast. The blasts, which took the lives of at least 157 people and injured more than 5,000, according to officials, are thought to have been caused by the still unexplained ignition of 2,750 tonnes of ammonium nitrate, a highly explosive chemical material which was reportedly stored without precautionary measures at the port, according to Lebanese Prime Minister Hassan Diab.
