toilet explosion

STOP the show. We have a new contender for the Greatest Local News Photo of the year. Brooklyn resident Michel Pierre is pictured flushing his toilet for a safe distance.

“I’m afraid to flush the toilet right now,” says Mr Pierre, 58, who needed 30 stitches to close shrapnel wounds on his head, arm and legs after his pressurised-valve loo exploded.

“It sounds silly but I’m still scared. Maybe someday it goes away but right now I’m in pain… I remember there was a ‘boom’ and the thing exploded in my face. I was blinded and pieces flew all over the place…I can’t stop thinking about it every time I look at the bowl.”

Too scared to flush
