Exploding Toilet Injures Airman

This is serious and it really happened! In Australia, American and Aussie forces were conducting military exercises at Rockhampton Airport in Queensland, Monday, when an Australian Airman paused to use a port-a-potty - similar to the one pictured on the right. As he is doing his business, speculation is that, he lit a cigarette. Military spokesmen are not saying that it was a methane explosion or not. They are also not identifying the airman. We do know that there was an explosion and that he was admitted to a local hospital in serious condition with 3rd degree burns to portions of his head, face, arms, chest and airways.

The military spokesman said, "I can confirm that an incident has happened but we're still gathering information."

Still gathering the information? Must have been one hell of an explosion!
