Man Engulfed in Flames After Using His Cellphone While Filling His Tank at Gas Station

An Indian motorcyclist was covered in flames when his phone exploded while having his gas tank filled.

Every time you go to a gas station to fill up your gas tank, do you pay particular attention to the safety signage posted near the pumps? Do you turn your engine and mobile phone off or just completely ignore those reminders?

Gas station owners put up warning signs all over their establishments for people to read and obey. After all, those simple instructions are there to keep us safe from danger. But, how many of us take the time to follow those directions?

A CCTV footage from a petrol station in the southern city of Hyderabad, India was able to capture a terrifying moment when a male motorcyclist was covered in flames while having his tank filled with gas.

This guy came to the station for a gas refill.

Like many others, he ignored the sign and kept his mobile phone on.
