It should be noted that such incidents, although rare, can transpire when safety is not followed. Earlier in 2021, a mechanic who was pumping air in a truck tyre was killed with parts of him blowing into pieces. Reportedly, the tubeless tyre bounced off the rim and the victim took the impact of the weight of the tyre on his face. The victim, later identified as Ajay Kushwaha, was thrown about 20 ft due to the explosion and died on the spot. Ironically, moments before the incident, the victim himself had asked people sitting close to him to move back.
