2 citizens of Bobruisk (of 18 and 13 years old) were sent to hospital because of their experimenting with unknown liquid. They found plastic bottle with the liquid in the street and tried to test whether it would burn or not, - press-service of Mogilev Region Emergency Department informs.
Teenagers took the bottle home, went into the balcony, put some liquid in the cover and set it to fire. The liquid turned to be petrol, and flame went to the floor. Boys tried to fight it with anything available. Meanwhile, a woman from neighbouring house saw the fire and called 101. Though, the fire had been liquidated before the fire brigade arrived, teenagers needed medical help and were sent to hospital with scalds.
According to press-service of Mogilev Region Emergency Department, pupils are among the risk group during school summer holidays. Very often children can’t realize the hidden danger of fire, explosive objects, and highly inflammable substances; it results in numerous traumas and scalds.
