WEST, Texas (Reuters) - West High School student Mason Barton, 17, was heading home from watching friends compete at a track and field meet on Wednesday when she got word of an explosion in her tiny town of West, outside of Waco, Texas.
"We were all making a joke," she said outside a local community centre on Thursday, tears streaming down her face. "Then we heard how bad it was. It was like something you hear out of a horror story."
