Following the massive gas explosion in Ghana which happened 7th October,2017, some of the people who witnessed Saturday night’s gas explosion at Atomic Junction in Accra, they thought the world was coming to an end.
In an interview with CLON, an injured victim in the explosion, Samuel Yeboah, a teacher, said although they heard the loud noise of the explosion, they thought the world had come to an end.
“You could even see a pin on the ground at the time although it was in the night so I thought the world has come to an end”, he said.
“My house is not too far from the gas station… so I started running as soon as I saw the flames in the skies, it was very frightening…..”, Yeboah told CLON .
“I was confused at a point because everywhere was brightened by the fire….. I didn’t know where the fire was coming from….. I was just running and running”, he said.
Yeboah added that “I fell down more than four times and hit my toes against stones many times….I thought I will die. In fact, I didn’t know how I got to Agyirigano from Madina on foot”.
According to him, some of the injured persons were knocked down by the moving vehicles.
“I saw some people being knocked down by vehicles. It was a chaotic moment. People were running away and the vehicles too were trying to run to safety”, he explained.
