Woman suffers serious burns while using phone at petrol station
KUALA LUMPUR: A woman suffered severe burns while she was using her mobile phone as her car was being refueled at a station in Setapak.
Witnesses said they saw the woman, aged 25, of Batu Caves talking on her phone inside the car at around 1.25pm Tuesday at the petrol station in Taman Setapak Indah.
A worker at the station said he then saw smoke in the back of the vehicle and rushed to it. When he opened the door thick smoke gushed out from the car.
“When we arrived at the scene about 10 minutes later, we found the victim with burns covering about 60% of her body,” he told The Star Online.
“The cause of the explosion seems to be due to the victim using her mobile phone while refueling her car,” he said.
The notion that mobile phones can cause fire/explosion at petrol stations is a myth.
