Oh man. Firecrackers and gasoline make such a bad combination. I know that Cambodian kids are very self-reliant and are often left unsupervised, but this makes me angry. The kid was only 8. Where are the adults ?
The shopkeeper: "Sure little kid, of course I'll sell you firecrackers to play with."
The aunty: "Nephew, go play in the yard next to those gasoline drums. "
:please:
RIP. So sad and unnecessary.

Last week in my village an 8 year old died. Didn't make the news. An electric cable was hinging from the roof, powered, without any circuitbraker installed. The kid played with it, and died as a result.

So sad, so unnecessary, and because it doesn't get reported it will happen again, and again, and again....

Even if empty of liquid gasoline, it was surely full of gasoline vapors. Combined with oxygen in the air and the sparks from a firecracker and BOOM!

It's probably just me, but I'm having trouble working out what could have happened. The oil drum looks normal in the first pic, and in the second two photo's, it does look as if there was an explosion inside of it due to the bulge, but it still looks intact and no sign of fire. The boy clearly put the fire cracker inside which made it explode, but unless the bottom of the barrel separated from the main body during the explosion and hit the boy (which we can't see in the pictures) I can't work what would have caused the boy's death?

The top of the drum is shown in the pic,,,, but is the bottom of the drum still there ?
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

There are only photos of the boy once he is dead, so we are not showing them because they don't add any information as to why and how the accident occurred.

Thanks for the added photo. I see what happened now. Very sad story. In other countries, someone would be up in front of a judge answering charges of, at least, child neglect. This was clearly so preventable.

RIP to the poor little guy.
