CHINA - A video of a man tossing a lit firecracker down a manhole and triggering an explosion has been making its rounds on the Internet.
According to Chinese news media, the incident occurred in a part of Hunan province on Jan 29.
Firecrackers are commonly found in China and are used to celebrate the lunar new year.
In the clip, the man is shown lighting a firecracker and bending over the manhole. Almost immediately, an explosion occurs, throwing him and two other boys who were with him, off their feet.
According to a Chinese media report, the manhole cover was blown at least 10 metres into the air. The boys were unharmed and fled after the explosion occurred.
The man appeared to be injured as the manhole cover was reported to have struck his arm.
He is shown lying on the ground as bystanders crowd around him.
A netizen who submitted the video to Singapore citizen journalism site, Stomp, says the explosion probably occurred because of the buildup of highly flammable gas in the sewer.
