This Is What It Looks Like When A Colombian Fireworks Factory Explodes

If you’ve ever wanted to see what it looks like when a fireworks factory explodes, here you go. This video comes to us from just outside Bogota, Colombia, via a man who was standing close enough to the action to get blown off of his feet and thrown backwards into the street when the explosion happened. Amazingly, despite the loud and dramatic bangs and booms in the video, there was only one minor injury as a result: a passing truck driver who was treated for “superficial shrapnel wounds” on his arm at the scene and then sent on his way. Imagine explaining that to your boss:

BOSS: You’re 10 minutes late.

DRIVER: A fireworks factory exploded as I was driving by it and I had to be treated for superficial shrapnel wounds.

BOSS: … oh.

Big day for that guy.
