Explosion and Fire at Oceana Water World Aquapark On Monday, in the still under-construction Oceana Water World aquapark in Gothenburg, an explosion followed by a fire occurred, resulting in 22 people sustaining minor injuries. Events unfolded rapidly, leaving visitors and staff in a state of shock and helplessness.
Technical inspector Tobias Diben, present at the aquapark during the incident, shared his observations. He noted that initially, nobody grasped the seriousness of the situation as the smoke rising above the water slides had an unusual black color. The situation quickly deteriorated, forcing those present to seek refuge in fleeing. "It felt like everything happened within a few minutes," recalls Diben, describing moments of chaos and destruction.
Questions remain about the causes of the fire, which prompted such a significant response from emergency services. Rescue teams continue to work at the scene, taking all necessary measures to address the aftermath of the disaster.
In addition to physical injuries and damage, the incident has had a significant impact on residents of nearby areas. Authorities have urged citizens to close doors, windows, and ventilation systems due to heavy smoke, indicating the scale and seriousness of the fire.
Fortunately, all those injured have been discharged from the hospital after being examined by medical professionals, indicating the minor nature of their injuries. Police confirmed that 16 people sought medical assistance, with another six receiving on-site aid without requiring hospitalization.
However, despite the relief regarding the relatively small number of serious injuries, the news of a construction worker's disappearance after the fire adds a worrisome dimension to the overall situation. Police are actively searching for the missing man, and his relatives have been informed of the situation.
This incident raises many questions and speculations about possible causes and consequences of such an incident, but it is important to emphasize the unity of efforts from rescue services, medical staff, and the local community in response to the crisis.
