Man loses legs in backyard home-made bomb blast

bombAustralia - Two men are fighting for their lives following an explosion in a backyard in Melbourne’s south-east. A police spokeswoman said the men, both aged in their 20s, were burying a cylinder or metal container of mixed chemicals when the explosion occurred. An Ambulance Victoria spokesman described the scene as horrific. Both men had to be placed into an induced coma at the scene because of critical injuries before being flown to Melbourne. Both remained in a critical condition. Police say the men were mixing the chemicals in their backyard in front of family and friends at the time of the explosion. The chemicals were brake fluid and chlorine. Neighbour Judy Gibbs said the explosion shook her house. I’d gone to bed and next minute there was this great, big, loud explosion - the windows in my house shook, the whole house shook.  More
