Suddenly, they caught sight of a bright light making its way towards them and before they could react, the firework landed on the man and exploded, resulting in a flurry of sparks and a thick cloud of smoke.

The explosion almost entirely ate up the man in white, making him not visible to the CCTV camera. However, the severity of his injuries remains unclear.

The man seated down was also seen trying to put out the flames by patting his thighs frantically.

It is also believed that the firework was set off from a neighbour’s house and did not go in the intended direction.
