    Fireworks wheelbarrow static charge explosion - GIF

    Fireworks wheelbarrow static charge explosion. Honestly, when the first two words are "fireworks wheelbarrow", what would you think would come next?

    Guess we can presume the guy was missing in action? (A euphemism for seriously dead.)

    Daily Mail is reporting that he lived: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...explosion.html

    Perhaps these types of explosions are more visually impressive than damaging? I had never heard of a wheelbarrow static charge accident before.

    Contrast with this video of a man being pulled into a lathe: Worker accidentally pulled into lathe . That one doesn't look too bad, like he just lost his shirt, but that one is reported as him having later died of his injuries.

    Hard to believe he wasn't killed. Though I had seen the other one where the guy got pulled through the lathe. Not surprised at all, that he didn't make it.
