Some people nearby who heard the explosion rushed to the scene and saw de Souza motionless on the floor. One witness told Mail Online:

“I was at a baby shower at my neighbor’s around 9 to 9.30pm when I heard this massive noise. I thought it was very strange and thought it could be a road accident. Then my friend said it must have come from the petrol station. We ran to see what had happened, and other people from a nearby pub came running, too. When we arrived, we found one guy on the floor covered in blood. It was a terrible sight. I couldn’t look because I started to feel ill.”

Witnesses also said the ambulance and firetrucks arrived quickly at the scene.
