The critically injured 30 victims, who were moved to Connaught Hospital were not expected to survive, the staff member in the intensive care unit, Foday Musa told ABC News. On Saturday, several victims whose clothes burned off in the fire that followed the explosion laid naked in the hospital waiting to be tended by nurses, ABC reported. Kins of those wounded and dead waited outside the hospital and mortuary waiting for updates on their loved ones. The situation has remained overwhelming for the hospital in the West African nation as it is still recovering from the shortage of healthcare professionals after the Ebola epidemic wiped off a population of doctors and nurses in the country.
After the collision, "both drivers came out of their vehicles and warned community residents to stay off the scene while trying to address a leakage emanating from the collision," the agency said, as per ABC. However, the impoverished population rushed to scoop as much fuel possible without fearing consequences, witnesses told the broadcaster. In no time the leaking fuel ignited and was followed by a massive explosion, the witnesses added.,tennis wear ladies
