Live TV is always tempting fate with bloopers, accidents and interruptions. News reports are always prone to a wolly in the background, but it isn’t often that an explosion throwing a manhole cover up into the air is caught on cam.
An underground electrical fire caused this explosion, which rather dangerously threw the manhole cover into the air.
Those things can weigh as much as 300lbs. NOT something you want to plonk onto your head in the street. Luckily, the police were able to evacuate the area and nobody was hurt.
