Houston teen tries to blow up turtle, ignites himself, and is rushed to the hospital
Talk about instant karma.
HOUSTON One can assume that, at 19 years old, a human being would have enough oxygen in their brain not to smoke a cigar while fastening a homemade bomb to a turtle, but nope.
That’s the case for one Houston teen who found himself with a slew of severe injuries after the ashes from the cigar he was smoking mixed with the “combustible mixture” in his pocket while he and a friend were going to “blow up turtles.”
Not much information has been released pertaining to the teen’s current condition but initial reports claimed that the 19-year-old suffered injuries to his lower extremities, hand and face.
Talk about a shell shock.
UPDATE on May 8: If I’m reading KHOU’s report correctly, the explosion happened before any turtles were harmed. Phew.
