Car Explodes Unexpectedly While Parked At New York Gas Station
S#!t got REAL in upstate New York when a man’s car exploded violently. This guy is lucky he’s still alive to be honest…
Fire officials in Rochester, New York, say they are still trying to figure out what sparked a recent car explosion that could be heard for miles by residents and left a man badly injured.
On Wednesday, around 12:30 a.m., the Rochester Fire Department said that Igor Pataco, 44, of Greece, New York, had purchased gasoline from the pumps of a Sunoco gas station. Authorities said he put the container of fuel in the passenger compartment of the car and then closed the doors for a few minutes.
Uhhh, they can’t figure out what happened after he put GASOLINE inside his car and closed the door???
Surveillance video taken at the gas station shows Pataco entering the car. Moments later it exploded. Flames melted some of the building’s light fixtures as well as a Sunoco sign.
Pataco survived the blast and is shown on video getting out of the vehicle with his clothes on fire. He then drops to the ground to extinguish the flames. Fire officials said he remained in a hospital after suffering second- and third-degree burns to about 30 percent of his body.
This looks absolutely terrifying. Prayers up for ol’ boy.
