Watch out for those airbags

The LA county sheriff's department put out a bulletin--watch out for delayed deployments of car airbags. A couple of firefighters got knocked out when they were extricating a victim from a crashed car. Even after the car has been motionless for some time, the airbag can still fire.

With around 12 or 14 airbags in a car these days, between the dash and the side pillars and the seats, you've gotta be careful out there.
