Screen_Shot_2014-02-17_at_9.36.24_PMAn Orange Walk resident is lucky to be alive tonight after a trailer diesel tank exploded on Sunday at the corner of Nargusta and Banak Streets.

 

According to Miguel Pren, who only suffered minor injuries, around 9:30 he was at his dad’s business namely Prens Welding Service welding a cylinder tank when it exploded. A big bang resonated in the area shortly after a large plume of smoke was seen. Luckily, the cylinder was empty which contributed to the fact that Pren only received a few burns to the right foot and chin.

 

He was taken to Northern Regional Hospital where he was treated and later released.
