The Boston fired 6 8inch guns simultaneously, I had been left outside with no protection. 500+ pounds of gun powder was detonated simultaneously. The shock wave which travels faster than the sound wave, knocked me out for 4-5 hours. IT left me with serious TBI, PTSD, Hearing loss, severe Tinnitus, & CAPD.
