If you’ve never been annoyed by a fly before or you’ve never chased a fly till you almost destroyed something, you may not relate well with this story. But you may be correct to say this man went to the extreme.
A man in France has blown up his kitchen while attempting to swat a fly, reports BBC.
The 80-year-old man was about to tuck into his dinner when he became irritated by a fly buzzing around him.
He picked up an electric fly swatter and started targeting it – but a gas canister was leaking in his Dordogne home.
A reaction between the device and the gas caused an explosion, destroying the kitchen and partly damaging the roof of the home in Parcoul-Chenaud village.
According to local media, the unnamed man had a lucky escape, sustaining just a burn to the hand.
The aspect is that no one knows the fate of the fly, news outlet Sud-Ouest reports.
The man has since checked into a local campsite while his family is repairing the house.
