TULSA - For the first time, one of the victims of Sunday's meth lab explosion at a South Tulsa apartment is speaking out about the blast.
Molly, a resident who lives in the building where the explosion occurred, told 2News it had been a typical Sunday afternoon for her.
"I was folding laundry and watching TV," said Molly.
Then at around 3:30 p.m., her apartment shook.
"I felt like it was an abrupt earthquake or something," said Molly. "The floor kind of raised a little bit and my dogs were scared to death. I screamed."
Molly said she ran outside.
"I ran out of my door and just opened the door and the smoke and smell just hit me straight in the face and it was awful," said Molly.
Molly then looked over the balcony at one of the units below.
"I saw a man screaming, running out screaming, looking at his hands and I could see the hands and there was no skin on his arms or on his hands," said Molly. "It was awful. I ran inside. I called 911."
Molly said she asked one of the men she saw exiting the apartment what had happened, but he said he didn't know.
Police arrived and confirmed it was a meth lab explosion, which shattered windows and tossed furniture in the air.
It even pulled part of the apartment wall from the building's foundation.
"These explosions are extremely dangerous," said Officer Jason Willingham, with the Tulsa Police Department. "You can see the power that came out of this explosion. Again, we were fortunate in this situation that the entire complex didn't burn down."
Molly said her apartment is uninhabitable because of the explosion.
"It just smells awful. I can't be in there for too long. I have to step outside. It smells terrible in there," said Molly. "I might have to throw away a lot of my belongings. I might have to throw away my clothes because it's contaminated."
Molly said the apartment manager has been very helpful and accommodating to her.
Molly is in the process of moving and has a message for anyone who might be using drugs.
"People who are doing things like this, you're not only putting yourself in danger. You're putting everyone around you in danger," said Molly.
The explosion left one man in the hospital with severe burns on 40 percent of his body.
Police arrested another man Timothy Davis, 34, who lived at the apartment.
The are still searching for a woman who was seen running from the apartment with the man who is currently in the hospital.
Police said the woman dropped the man off at the hospital.
She is described as a white woman, named Donna, who is in her late 20s or early 30s.
The woman has dark hair and was driving a 2007 dark blue or black Chevy Quad Cab truck with Oklahoma license plate 119HLY.
