Facing the 2023 electoral elections that will define the course of the entity, tension has begun to appear between the candidates for the candidacy as well as in the respective political parties and coalitions they represent.
Minutes later, Civil Protection elements arrived, as well as police and firefighters from the municipality, who cordoned off the area. They indicated that the accident originated from the accumulation of gas.
According to preliminary reports, those injured suffered first and second degree burns on their faces, necks and part of their arms.
Among the injured are Carlos, 31, Feliciano María, 32, Melanie and José Manuel. Also two minors identified as Marilenie ‘N’, 7 months old, and Abdiel Nava, 4 years old, both with burns on their arms and part of their faces.
Due to the seriousness of the injuries, the family was channeled to the General Hospital of La Perla and Gustavo Baz Prada, where their prognosis is reserved.
In addition to damage to the first floor of the house, the fence of an adjoining house fell and two more registered other types of damage.
Experts in the field of civil protection ensure that many Mexican families minimize the correct maintenance and proper placement of gas installations, in addition to the fact that few people have a plan to deal with this type of emergency.
An explosion is the maximum manifestation of a gas accumulation that is activated by a heat source and, although detonations are not very common, leaks are, especially due to poor piping installation or carelessness not to adequately close the passage in fixed installations.
When detecting a gas leak, the most important thing is to verify the origin, close the fuel stopcocks and even cut off the electric current to prevent a heat source from causing a detonation.
It is necessary to adequately ventilate the house and report it to the building administration, if you live in a group of apartments, or to the neighbors if it is a single-family home. If the gas leak cannot be controlled, then the supplier company’s leak center or the fire brigade should be called.
Likewise, it is important to always have a backpack or help folder on hand that contains basic documents and telephone numbers.
While to avoid leaks and accumulation of LP or natural gas, it is necessary to adequately check the facilities, that the pipes are painted yellow, according to the Official Mexican Standard NOM-0026, and that they are not cracked or exposed to factors that may cause it to break.
