What’s worse than a fatal accident? A fatal accident followed by fatalities to first responders or rescuers. 

Six rescuers were recently killed while trying to save 26 miners after a coal mine explosion in Russia. The rescuers were killed when the methane exploded again during their rescue attempt. See:
