| Tragedy for brothers who modified cooking gas tank for car|
By CHEN PELF YEEN and ALLISON LAI ( The Star)
MALACCA: Tragedy struck two brothers trying to save on fuel by self-modifying a cooking gas tank for their van's natural gas tank when one of them was killed in an explosion.
The incident occurred at a Petronas petrol station in Batu Berendam on Friday night.
The incident happened when brothers Mohd Hailmi Ishak, 25, from Kampung Duyong, and his brother Rosli Ishak, 30, from Taman Tiang Dua, had stopped at the petrol station at about 7.50pm Friday to pump gas into their Toyota Lite Ace van with the help of a worker Razali Md Zin, 31.
It is believed that Rosli, the driver, was refuelling the vehicle while his younger brother was standing nearby with Razali when the blast occurred, shattering the front portion of the vehicle including blowing out two of its doors.
The explosion completely shattered Mohd Hailmi’s left leg and ripped his stomach open while Rosli and Razali escaped with light injuries.
Mohd Hailmi, a self-employed electrician, was rushed to the Malacca Hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries at about 1.30am Saturday.
When met at the hospital, Mohd Hailmi’s father-in-law, Zahmin Ibrahim, 50, said the victim and his daughter Nur Syahirah Zahmin, 23, had recently tied the knot in July and had gone for their honeymoon in New Zealand three months ago.
He said that his daughter, who is two-months pregnant, was devastated at the tragic death of her husband.
It is learnt that Mohd Hailmi and Rosli run a family business repairing and dealing in second-hand electrical appliances that involves them making trips to Singapore and Johor with the van.
Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam urged the police and relevant authorities to investigate the incident to determine how a cooking gas tank could have been modified for use in the vehicle.
Meanwhile, Kubu Fire and Rescue stations investigating officer Mokhtar Osman said initial investigations indicated that the gas tank was located underneath the front seat of the vehicle

Pelanggan sebuah pam minyak yang sedang mengisi petrol ke dalam kenderaan masing-masing lari bertempiaran apabila mendengar bunyi letupan dari pam gas asli kenderaan (NGV) bersebelahan.
Difahamkan letupan yang berlaku pada jam 10.40 malam tadi di sebuah stesen minyak di Batu 5 Jalan Cheras berhampiran pusat beli-belah Leisure Mall di sini, berpunca daripada tong gas memasak yang disimpan dalam but sebuah kenderaan yang mengisi NGV di stesen itu.
Menurut pemilik kenderaan itu yang hanya ingin dikenali sebagai Yong, 45, letupan itu berlaku selepas lima minit dia mula mengisi tangki NGV di belakang keretanya sebelum dikejutkan dengan dentuman kuat yang meranapkan belakang kenderaan jenis Nissan itu.
“Saya bernasib baik, ketika kejadian saya berada di hadapan jika tidak pasti saya akan parah akibat serpihan besi daripada letupan kuat itu.
“Saya tergamam dan terpaksa meniarap, risau jika berlaku letupan susulan bagaimanapun bangun beberapa minit kemudian selepas mendapati keadaan selamat,” katanya ketika ditemui.
Yong mendakwa dia terpaksa menyimpan tong gas memasak terbabit dalam but kenderaannya apabila tidak sempat untuk menghantarnya pulang ke rumah selepas dia menukarnya di kedai pada sebelah pagi.
Dia yang dalam kebingungan dengan kejadian itu kemudian menghubungi isteri bagi memaklumkan kejadian yang hampir meragut nyawanya serta meranapkan kereta yang baru tiga bulan menggunakan sistem NGV itu.
Sementara itu, pekerja stesen minyak terbabit yang hanya ingin dikenali sebagai Ali, ketika kejadian dia bertugas di kaunter apabila tiba-tiba mendengar letupan kuat dan gegaran.
Berikutan kejadian itu, perkhidmatan di stesen minyak berkenaan dihentikan seketika manakala khidmat untuk mengisi NGV ditangguh sehingga pemeriksaan keselamatan selesai dijalankan.

Gas cylinder in car boot explodes at petrol station
KUALA LUMPUR: A man cheated death when an NGV gas cylinder in his car boot exploded at a petrol station in Jalan Jambu Jerteh, Jinjang here.
He said the man’s car had been taken back to the Jinjang police station for further investigations.
Firm: Blast not linked to NGV
Petronas advised NGV vehicle users to heed safety precautions on NGV usage, which include avoiding close contact between highly flammable materials and the NGV gas cylinder.
The explosion is caused by the driver carrying one or more explosive Acetylene container(s) at the rear compartment.
The picture shows clearly that the NGV cylinder is not the cause of the problem.
