Medan – As many as five people from 30 people were killed in a fire at the fountain factory on Jalan Tengku Amir Hamzah, Sambirejo Village, Binjai Subdistrict, Langkat Regency, are children.
Based on a letter from the Sambirejo Village, Binjai Subdistrict, the five children were respectively, Pinja and Sasa, children of Yunita Sari, residents of Sambirejo Gang Mirat; Juna and Bisma are children from Desi, residents of Sambirejo and Sifah, children of Fitri, residents of Sambirejo.
However, in the circular it was not mentioned the age of the five children. Because the Regional Disaster Management Agency (BPBD) Langkat indeed stated that the death toll was 30, three of them children.
“After all of our members go down, all of them are 30 people. The details are 3 children, the rest are adults,” said Head of Langkat BPBD, Irwan Syahri.
He said, the victims were generally women and were workers in the manufacture home industry or gas lighter. In addition, there were some children who were also victims because they joined their mothers to work.
Sofyan, one of the families of the victims of the fire accident, was devastated. This man could not hide the look of sadness on his face. He must be abandoned by his wife and his favorite daughter. Both of them were killed baked in the factory.
“I was just right when there was an event. So when I wanted to take a break, my friend called. I asked my wife to go home or not. I said not yet. Apparently my friend said the factory was on fire,” Sofyan said.
Sofyan immediately rushed over. He managed to break into the fire area. But what he witnessed was a pile of bodies in the room. He also saw the body of his wife Yuli Fitriana and her son Syifa.
“My son is in the fifth grade of elementary school. He went back to school directly to the factory because there was no one at home,” Sofyan said tearfully. “My wife has been working there for three years,” he said as he passed into the Bhayangkara Hospital.
