Goil Filling Station Fire: Survivor's unedited testimony (READ)



By Agnes Matilda Mends-Armstrong (Survivor)

 So June 3,2015 will be a day I will forever remember........but most importantly, this day will forever remind me of the LOVE and MERCIES OF GOD and His favour upon my life!..............I was going home en route circle when the rains started......I decided to take solace at honest chef restaurant as the streets began flooding up and there was no car in sight. 

After some hours the restaurant began flooding up as well and we all had to stand outside in the flood on a higher levelled ground to keep from drowning; there were more than 25 pple there ......WE COULD SMELL FUEL in the water coming from the GOIL FILLING STATION which was about three blocks away but there was no escape......Just when we decided to move by hook or crook, there was an explosion possibly caused by the gas from the kitchen and the fuel in the water.........there was screaming and scrambling for life........I SAW THE MAN HOLDING MY HAND CATCH FIRE RIGHT BEFORE MY VERY EYES.........he pushed me under the water together with a woman and her baby and every where around me was burning with people screaming out of agony and pain from their burns..........the woman with the baby tied at her back was not moving(she had drowned)and I thought I was dead because I was so sure I had caught on the fire (which had engulfed almost everyone around me) UNTIL A MAN 

FROM NO WHERE PULLED ME OUT AND ASKED ME TO SWIM OR RUN THROUGH THE WATER..........NOW THIS MAN WAS NOT ON FIRE NEITHER WAS HE RUNNING FOR HIS LIFE; HE JUST PULLED ME OUT AND ASKED ME TO RUN; I NEVER SAW HIM AGAIN!!......I had dropped my bag, phones, and spectacles in the flood and I run in the opposite direction with my mind blank and not seeing anything until i was far from the fire which was catching on fast and started screaming for help.....the people around couldn't believe I was alive because they saw the fire.......they saw me come out of it and YET I HAD NO BURNS TO THE GLORY OF GOD!!!............ I STILL CANT BELIEVE I'M ALIVE.......GOD IS GREAT AND I'M ETERNALLY GRATEFUL FOR THIS MIRACLE!...........I can't sleep at night because i keep hearing the screams from the people I stood and chatted with while waiting for the flood to subside.........I keep smelling petrol, diesel and smoke in my room when I'm alone........I look at the gory pictures of the charred bodies of the people I stood with and I can't HELP BUT SHED TEARS.......GOD SAVED MY LIFE............HE SENT AN ANGEL TO PULL ME OUT AND GAVE ME STRENGTH TO RUN!........I IMPLORE ALL THE UNBELIEVERS THERE WHO READ THIS TO GIVE THEIR LIVES TO JESUS CHRIST AND ALL THE BELIEVERS TO HOLD ON TO THEIR FAITH.......... GOD IS GREAT!!
