Two teenage boys, in Gurgaon, burn to death in a freak accident
In a freak accident, which many would describe as fate, two teenagers were burnt to death. They were trapped in a car with their uncle, who was rescued from the scene by some bikers, but the two kids could not be saved. The incident, which happened near Bijwasan on Wednesday evening saw the horrific deaths of 16 year old Pankaj and 19 year old Sumit. Their uncle, Yashvir was driving the car, which caught fire. The uncle was the only survivor and is recuperating in AIIMS, with 20 per cent burns, as per a source.
The car, which was being driven by Yashvir caught fire and within minutes the entire incident happened. The inside of the car filled with smoke, so much so that when people tried to break the windows, they were unable to. As soon as the malfunction happened, the car got centrally locked and all the three people were locked inside. Due to the efforts of some bikers, the driver was rescued.
However, since the driver was unconscious when they got him out, he couldn't inform them about his nephews were trapped inside. When he did come around, the car had already caught fire. As was reported by timesofindia.com, the relatives recounted that Yashvir immediately pulled over when he saw smoke in the cabin. However, what followed was sheer misfortune.
The relatives, said, '' He(Yashvir) was going to Bijwasan alone first, for some business. Then the younger one insisted that he wanted to come along. When they drove a little further, they came across the elder brother, Pankaj, and he too wanted go with them. This was fate.''
While the police is investigating the case, the accident spot and the car has been covered with a marquee.
