Safety accident



Video of the burning truck before the explosion in Bogoso pops up.

The people of Apiate, Bogoso are currently grieving after today's explosion. News about a gas explosion earlier this afternoon broke out unto the internet and looking at the details, understanding the whole incident seems impossible.

It is reportedly said that a motorized tricycle, which us popularly known in the country as Aboboyaa, collided with a fuel tanker, causing the disaster. I wonder how a vehicle as small as a motorized tricycle can cause such an alarming harm.

The number of people dead haven't been disclosed yet but looking at the incident, I am afraid we might be recording more than a hundred people. This whole incident happened at Apiate in the Western Region of Ghana.

A video depicting the state of the truck right before the explosion has surfaced on the internet and I think sharing with you should be my priority. I would like to leave the link over here.

Kobby Kyei posted this video on his page and it is very sad. Looking at the video, you could see the truck in flames. One weird thing is that, people were approaching the burning vehicle and I think it was very needless. How do you get near such a dangerous scene?

Had they known the doom that awaited, they would have fled for their lives. School kids will return home hoping to see their parents but they will be nowhere to be found, people have lost their homes, there are dead people all over. I feel very bad for them and may their souls rest in peace.
