Amateur video captures moments after Bolivia carnival explosion that left 8 dead


Mobile phone footage has captured the horror and chaos moments after Saturday's deadly gas canister explosion in Bolivia.

The images show emergency workers rushing to the aid of injured, while dazed survivors sit among the wreckage.

People are heard screaming for help for their wounded loved ones, and debris is seen scattered in every direction.

At least eight people were killed when the canister exploded during the carnival parade in Oruro, some 155 miles (250 kilometers) south of La Paz.

Authorities said three children were among those killed in the blast, and at least 40 people were hurt.

Police believe hot oil spilled and burned a hose connected to the tank, releasing gas that exploded.
