Sensing danger, parents asked him to move away from the place. The balloon seller moved away to some distance and started filling balloons with hydrogen.Suddenly, the hydrogen cylinder exploded with a big bang killing the seller on the spot. The explosion was so powerful that the balloon seller was torn into pieces.
