Parcoul-Chenaud, France – September 08, 2020
A man blew up part of his house while trying to get rid of a bug. An 82-year-old man sat down to dinner when he became aware of a buzzing fly. He tried to hit the fly with an electric fly swatter – not realizing that a gas canister was leaking inside his house.
A reaction between the swatter and the leaking gas triggered an explosion which brought down part of the kitchen and damaged the roof of his house. The fate of the fly is unknown.
