A manhole exploded after a boy threw a lit firecracker into a sewer in eastern China.
The dramatic video, filmed in the city of Jieshou in Anhui Province on January 26, shows a boy dropping a lit firecracker into a manhole and running away quickly.
A huge explosion then occurred, sending two manhole covers around 5-metres-high into the air.
A light pole was damaged and the boy suffered minor skin trauma to his leg, reports said.
