    “The owner of the cylinder had just refilled it with gas and unknown to her, the cylinder was leaking. The rider of the tricycle parked by the roadside for the woman to fix the leaking cylinder, but unfortunately, there was a car with a radiator problem parked nearby,” the witness told newsmen.
