SCDF Firefighter caught in taxi explosion escaped with minor injuries



As you may have seen the viral video of a taxi that exploded at Buona vista, a fire fighter from the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) was seen injured in the explosion.

The photo above is the heroic fire fighter that was injured this afternoon. After the taxi exploded, he retreated and removed his helmet, gloves and threw it on the floor. His gear must have been scorching hot.

Minutes later, another SCDF fire bike arrived to assist further.
