Quote:A New Zealand truck driver who fell on a compressed air hose that pierced his buttock has survived being blown up like a balloon.Read more here: bbc.co.uk
The nozzle pierced his buttock and began pumping air into his body, which expanded dramatically.
He said that doctors had told him they were surprised that his skin had not burst, as the compressed air - pumping into his body at 100lb/sq in - had separated fat from muscle.
"I was blowing up like a football... I had no choice but just to lay there, blowing up like a balloon. I felt the air rush into my body and I felt like it was going to explode from my foot. I was blowing up like a football... it felt like I had the bends, like in diving."
He added his skin feels "like a pork roast", hard and crackly on the outside but soft underneath.
Hands down one of the craziest things I've ever heard, sounds like something from a horror movie that couldn't actually happen, but somehow apparently did.
