Man dies in Mossel Bay blast
Johannesburg - A man was killed and another was seriously injured on Monday in a gas explosion in Mossel Bay, near Cape Town, paramedics said.
The two men were cutting an unidentified cylinder in a scrap metal yard at 08:00, when gas ignited and caused an explosion, said ER24 spokesperson Andre Visser.
An ambulance took the two injured men to hospital, but one of them died before getting there.
Three other people, who witnessed the blast, received counselling before being taken to a nearby clinic, Visser said.
