Fact Check:

The Logical Indian broke the video into several keyframes using the InVid tool and then did a reverse image search with one of the keyframes. The Yandex reverse image search led to a YouTube channel, Rk chandel borkhandi, where the video was published on July 25, 2020. The title of the video read in English as "A shocking incident happened in Jaipur at a road near Hawa Mahal due to seal breaking of a tanker."

Taking a hint, we did a keyword search and found the incident was also reported by Dainik Bhaskar. According to the article, a tanker filled with ammonia collided with the roof of Prahladpura railway underpasses on Tonk road. Around 10 fire-brigade vehicles were used to control the leak.

Patrike also reported about the incident sharing a video that resembles the viral video.

The Quint spoke to a local reporter who said, "Since the height of the tanker was more than that of the underpass, the tanker's walve hit the underpass and hence the gas started leaking out of the tanker."

Hence, an old video of ammonia leakage has gone viral as oxygen-wastage in Rajasthan.
