Ecco L'allegro Saldatore
2013 Darwin Award Nominee
Confirmed True by Darwin

(5 Feb 2013, São Paulo, Brazil) Mechanic Sérgio A. Rosa, 49, was welding a gas tanker that, curiously, exploded, sending his remains flying 400 meters through the air.

Comments: "A flammable materials tanker is like a gun.
Never consider it empty, or you'll pay the price."
"Did his life flash before his eyes?"

Ten years previously another Brazil man exploded another tanker.

Awful? 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Great?
Hate it! Love it!
