"Despite medical assistance, the doctors failed to save the life of a man injured in an explosion at the fair. The man was in the intensive care unit and his condition was serious. Yesterday [December 31], his health check results worsened. The man died today," Lviv City Council said in a statement on its website on January 1.

Ihor Stoyanovskyi, a deputy chief physician for the surgical care department at the 8th Clinical Hospital, said that the victim's condition was constantly serious, as burns covered 50% of his body's surface area.

As UNIAN reported earlier, at 13:15 Kyiv time on December 22, 2018, a gas cylinder exploded at a booth amid the Christmas Fair near Lviv's Opera Theater building.
