After an oil tanker flipped over in the Democratic Republic of Congo, some residents tried to collect the oil from the streets. Unfortunately, one person was smoking a cigarette at the time, which caused the tanker to explode. In a matter of minutes, a perceived opportunity turns into tragedy. Most of the victims were in a bar, reportedly watching the world cup at the time. Then, just like that the lives of many extinguished, due to the mistake of one. You never no when someone else's actions will infringe on your life. My thoughts are with the families who lost loved ones in this tragic, senseless accident.
