Did You Know A Man Nearly Exploded When An Air Valve Lodged Into His Buttocks?
Steven McCormack, a New Zealand Trucker, had a lucky escape from a freak accident which nearly made him explode. The unfortunate event saw Steven have compressed air pumped into his body, inflating him to twice his size!
It occurred at a gas station where he was working. He tripped and fell on a broken air pressure valve. Within moments, 100 of lbs of compressed air was being pumped into his body.
Miraculously, Steven made a full recovery. The air had to be released from his body. That is, by burping and passing wind.
