The accident occurred in the early afternoon of Friday (Oct. 12) in the northern capital of Pernambuco, Brasil.
Two balloon sellers Marcelo, 42, and Vanderson, 19, had their legs amputated during the explosion and are admitted to the Hospital. Despite the worsening of the situation, they are not at risk of death.
Besides the vendors, 3 other people were burned during the explosion. One has already been released by the hospital. Two others remain hospitalized. The doctors who treated these two wounded said they suffered third-degree burns on the legs.
The Institute of Criminology of Recife has the expertise in place, and now investigates possible causes of the accident.
Among the hypotheses that have caused the explosion is the mishandling of the gas cylinder that was used to fill balloons.
The balloon sellers had permission to handle this type of equipment.
