    Dump truck hydraulic explosion - GIF and video

    Dump truck hydraulic explosion. Yes, I believe this counts as an "explosion", although I had to look it up. Definitely among the rarer explosive catastrophe vids on the net.



    Not sure what's happening here. Why is the guy running right before the explosion? Sees/hears something? Yes, he appears to jog away after the explosion. No gore here, but the driver is probably not so lucky.

    Separate event, same type of catastrophe with same type of vehicle. 55-second video:

    I didn't know this, but a quick internet search provides all the evidence necessary to back up your point. Public service message: do not look up "hydraulic injection injury" in Google Images.

    A pressure washer can do the same thing Jon. I had one remove the skin from my thumb when I carelessly allowed the business end to pass over it while holding a part I was cleaning. Thankfully the angle it was at kept it from injecting the soap and water into my thumb. It was the type of stupid mistake you only need to make once....
