A man has had his fingers blown off by an exploding “China” brand cigarette, providing the latest evidence of the explosive growth in Chinese product quality.
The Zhejiang province grocer lit up only to have the cigarette explode in his fingers.
Pictures show the man hospitalised with severe injuries to his fingers, with some reports saying his fingers were “blown off” by the force of the explosion.
As a supposed luxury brand, just how the cigarettes attained their explosive properties is not known (similar incidents with cheaper brands now scarcely warrant mention). Authorities are said to be investigating.
