Boy Blown 30 Ft into Air After Throwing Firecracker Down Manhole

Not the brightest bulb in the box.

A boy playing with firecrackers in China stuck one down into a manhole through holes in the grate while passersby ignored him. Within seconds, he is blown right out of the frame of the camera as the sewer exploded.

He was hit with the lid of the manhole but survived the blast. No one else appeared to have been hurt from the video.

This is not an isolated incident, and several similar incidents have been reported in China in recent days as the country nears Chinese New Year and children are off school.
