As search and rescue operations are being conducted in surrounding areas, a video of a domestic help saving a child just as the blast occurred, has gone viral on the social media platforms.

In the clip the domestic help was seen cleaning the living room moments ahead of the explosion while the child was busy playing. Soon after, the little girl walked up near the window and stood there as the blast occurred seconds later.
