Tragedy as gas cylinder blast kills five children

Dhaka, Bangladesh - At least five children were killed after a gas cylinder being used to inflate toy balloons exploded in the Bangladeshi capital Dhaka on Wednesday, police and firefighting officials said.



Speaking with newsmen, Mohammad Rasel, an official at the Fire Service and Civil Defence department, said that the cylinder went off as a vendor inflated the balloons to sell them among children gathered on the wayside in the Mirpur neighbourhood of Dhaka, leaving four of them dead at the scene.

According to the official, the children are between the ages of 7 years and 14 years.
Physician Alauddin, who goes by a single name, said the condition of four of them is critical.
Television footage showed the relatives of the victims wailing at the blood-soaked scene, while others crowded hospitals.

He said that an investigation had been launched to determine the reason behind the accident.
Deaths from cylinder blasts are common in Bangladesh due to lack of inspections and the users’ unwillingness to get the containers tested regularly.
