“Kill Me Or Save Me” – Desire Benjamin On Surviving A Gas Explosion That Almost Took Her Life


When Desire Benjamin had an indoor gas explosion accident, the first thing her father did was take her to the bathroom as he thought it was a mild accident. But Desire later woke up in a hospital and in a very bad shape that even got doctors scared.

The unforgettable part of this experience for Desire is when doctors come for bandage change every two days.

“That was like going to hell and coming back. I kept on pasing out every time this is happening because blood and water will start coming out from my body from head to toe,” she told Inspaya TV.

At a point, she told God to either take her life or let her live.

With prayers from both friends and families, Desire survived the ordeal. Watch her share the story below
