Pedestrians walking along the road scurried, trying to save their lives after the powerful explosion.
Witnesses who hear the eruption turn and run the other way. The nearby e-bike rider has his back turned to the explosion and is unable to respond in time as the road beneath his feet violently erupts and throws him clean off his vehicle.
The rider flies headlong toward the ground as the road settles once more and blast debris falls from the sky.
