Artist's comments:
“When I saw the flash and electric sparks, a thick ray, like electric light fireworks, shone on me. I instantly lay flat on the ground and covered my eyes and ears as I had trained to do. However, I had already sustained burn injuries on the left side of my face, my back and a part of my left hand.”
