Bhopal/IBNS: Five people including three children were injured when a cylinder used to fill balloons exploded in Madhya Pradesh's Ujjain, media reports said on Sunday.

According to police, a balloon seller was filling air at a crowded New Year fair when the explosion happened.

Many children had gathered around him to buy balloons, said reports.

The condition of one of the injured children, who is eight years old, turned critical.

He was taken to a hospital in Indore for advanced treatment. All others are being treated at a local hospital.

The explosion was so intense that walls near the fair were damaged.

Local official Preeti Gaikwad told media that the accident happened due to the wrong mixture of hydrogen gas in the cylinder.

The parts of the damaged cylinder have been sent to a laboratory for investigation.
