Somebody at PetroCanada/Suncor needs to pull the security tape of this incident, I’d say. And, I think, fire that franchisee. The mother needs the Riot Act read to her, too, I think:
Warren: Witnessed a terrible accident at a Petrocanada station (Don Mills & Lawrence) A mother allowed her 7 yr old son to pump the gas and he took the nozzle out while still holding the handle down. She wasn’t watching and the child had gas spray ALL OVER his face, eyes, nose and mouth. I alerted her, he was screaming, I told her to get him into the bathroom, and start flushing with cold water and I callled 911. The gas station attendants DID NOTHING!!!!!!!!!! They just went about their business like nothing at all was happening. I was so shocked that there seemed to be no emergency procedure in place – no special “station” with solution for flushing eyes/mouths…NOTHING. When I got home, I called Petro Canada and lodged a complaint but they couldn’t care less. I mean the kid could have burst into flame…it was awful.
