    Hydrogen Cannon.

    You Tube of a bloke violating/ignoring safety procedures and paying the price. Being complacent is never good.

    What is that pressure vessel? He seemed to be washing it with a garden hose? What would cause an explosion?

    I have no idea what the vessel is but it would seem that he was probably using some volatile solvent in the hose when the critical percentage of oxygen to fuel ratio was achieved, a combination of the proper temperature in the vessel and a spark from static electricity from his cleaning cloth or whatever he was using created a flash-over. The volume of air space in the vessel versus the nozzle effect of the opening accentuated the thrust of the blast I would imagine death could have been instant if not at the very least his arm would have been vaporized and half his head would have had burns more severe than 3rd degree. judging from the force that carried him away, my vote was instant death

    I would think it is the employer who is complacent/stupid/whatever, not the poor worker.

    I think his hard hat didn't make it through the roof.....but the wearer did? Looks like a piece of his shirt rained down from the ceiling.

    I've never seen anyone disappear so quick. Is that his coat dropping in the background and is that bits of him dropping all over the place. You see his hat come to ground.
    I have a 1972 Land Rover Series III Truck Cab/Pick-Up and a 1962 Land Rover Series 2a Carawagon Camper.
