    Today 70 years a huge explosion destroyed the BASF factory in Ludwigshafen.

    A 17 year old boy was working only 70 metres away from the exploding tank wagon, the hall ceiling came down,
    crushed his leg and an unknown US soldier saved his life by using a cutting torch to free him.
    Who was the soldier?
    The leg had be be partly taken away, but he is alive and well and would like to thank the guy.
