This footage captures the chaotic scene moments after a fireball engulfed partygoers at a
water park in Taiwan.
More than 500 people were injured in the incident which happened in Taipei on Saturday evening
- after revellers who had gathered for a party, were sprayed with coloured powder
The powder caught alight, causing burns and other injuries to at least 516 people - with
180 being taken to intensive care.
Media reported four mainland Chinese and two foreigners were among those injured after
the fire where up to 1,000 people had been dancing to music.
In the immediate aftermath of the explosion, rescuers treated hundreds of people,
most of them aged between 20 and 30, wearing wet swimsuits and lying on inflatable plastic doughnuts -
which were used to help carry many of the injured.
No deaths have been reported, but victims of the incident suffered burns to the limbs,
with some passing out from the pain while others had burned clothes stuck to their skin
and some breathed in the powder causing respiratory problems.
The blaze, which broke out around 8.30 p.m. local time at the Formosa Fun Coast water park
on the outskirts of the capital is suspected to have been caused by an explosion of the powder.
Authorities have now banned the use of the powder until an investigation is completed.
