This 5-year-old boy had an incredibly lucky escape


THIS VIDEO SHOWS a five-year-old boy being thrown in the air after a manhole exploded underneath him.

The boy can be seen playing on rollerskates before dropping the firecracker into the manhole, which violently explodes underneath him before he has time to move away. He escaped with injuries only to his leg.
