Drain cover explodes after boy throws lit firecracker down it in China

A drain cover exploded and landed on a boy after he threw a lit firecracker down a bilge well in northern China.

The CCTV video, filmed in the city of Xi’an in Shaanxi Province on February 22, shows a 6-year-old boy named Xin Yue dropping a lit firecracker down into a bilge well.

The well cover then exploded into the sky and landed on the boy.

Nearby adults moved the well cover away from the boy and called an ambulance to send him to hospital.

The boy suffered fractures to his pelvis, reports said.
