An engineer working on an air conditioning unit on the roof of a commercial office building in Los Bermejales, Seville, suffered burns after the unit reportedly exploded.
According to the Diario de Sevilla, emergency services were called to the Centro Indotorre on avenida del Reino Unido at around 10.00 local time.
The injuries were not reported to be serious, the engineer suffering burns and injuries as a result of the impact of pieces of the air conditioner.
There were also unconfirmed reports some pieces of the air conditioner fell on and injured a pedestrian in the street below.
One person died and two were seriously injured in Vietnam last Wednesday (May 6) following a reported air conditioning explosion. Just three days earlier, two workers had died after an air conditioner they were working on “exploded” in Cambodia. The Cooling Post later uncovered reports that one man had died and one received serious burns after a similar incident on May 7 in Bangladesh.
There is currently nothing to link the incidents.
