This is one of those “you can’t make this stuff up” stories
Britain celebrated Bonfire Night, traditionally marked with fireworks to celebrate the Guy Fawkes’ gunpowder plot to blow up Parliament in the 17th century on Sunday.
On Sunday, a 22-year-old British soldier recently returned from Iraq suffered internal injuries after lighting a small firecracker he had inserted in his rear end. The young man suffered burns and other, unspecified internal injuries. A friend who called paramdeics reported that the young man was bleeding from the rectum after the incident — which was captured on several cell phone cameras.
Several of the man’s friends recorded the incident on a mobile phone. The blurry images show a man bent over with his pants down and a white flash as the firecracker explodes.
Wonder how long before one of them posts it for … umm … posterity?
