Woman narrowly escapes gas canister explosion in southern Russia (VIDEO)

Woman narrowly escapes gas canister explosion in southern Russia (VIDEO)
The trunk of a car, parked in a quiet area in the center of the southern Russian city Krasnodar, has been torn in pieces after a suspected gas canister exploded inside. A passerby was lucky to escape injuries.

A woman was walking in a street on a hot day in Krasnodar, with temperatures crumbling up to 40 degrees Celsius. Suddenly an explosion rocked a nearby car, with pieces nearly missing her. The incident was captured on video and was posted by a local social media channel on Tuesday.

The heat might have been to blame for the incident as a gas canister, installed in the car, apparently did not sustain the temperature, according to local media reports. Locals immediately called firefighters, but luckily no fire broke out.
