He little expected that his request for a fire extinguisher would be refused by the two BHP staff on duty and as his pleas fell on deaf ears, the Myvi's female driver died as the car burned.
The Myvi in question was severely damaged in an accident involving a lorry and a Toyota Vios.
According to Teo, he heard the Myvi's female driver call for help while at the same time, a fire around the engine area was spreading.
The accident occured at around 3.30 am, near the Cheras velodrome according to Bernama.
While making calls to the fire department and police, Teo made his way to the petrol station.
His requests were denied, the staff claiming that the management did not allow the loan of fire extinguishers to the public.
