Tragedy struck in Sungai Petani on 22 November, when a 43-year-old technician from Bandar Puteri Jaya died after a fire extinguisher exploded causing severe injuries to his legs, thighs and left arm. When the incident happened around 1.15pm, the victim, Mohamad Yusri Omar, was found semi-conscious by his 38-year-old wife who heard a loud explosion.

Yusri who’s an electronic technician was brought to Hospital Sultan Abdul Halim (HSAH) by his wife and neighbour, reported Astro Awani.

Kuala Muda District Police Chief, Assistant Commissioner Adzli Abu Shah said once the victim arrived at the hospital, he was conscious for about 20 minutes but was soon declared dead by the doctor. Further investigations showed that the victim’s neighbour said the fire extinguisher suddenly emitted white smoke.

The victim then prompted to take the fire extinguisher and throw it away but unfortunately, it exploded. The neighbour also added that the fire extinguisher was for in-vehicle use but has been out of the car for the past two days.

To find out what caused the fire extinguisher to explode, the Forensic Division of the Fire and Rescue Department of Malaysia (JBPM) were called and they noted that there were cut marks on the extinguisher. Further investigation of the scene, however, did not find any tools used to cut off the fire extinguisher.

Our condolences to the victim and his family. Incidents like these remind us to hold those we love closely as you may never know when everything could change in a split second.
