Man chasing fly accidentally blows up part of house: report

We have all been annoyed by a small insect or a fly at some point or the other, but one man accidentally blew up part of his house while trying to get rid of a bug.

The 82-year-old man who lives alone in France, had just finished preparing dinner on Friday evening when he noticed a house fly hanging around.

Grabbing an electric fly swatter shaped like a racquet, he swung at the small insect, but was unaware of the fact that a gas cylinder in his home was leaking.

Unfortunately, he didn't realise there was a gas canister leaking inside his home.

The man's attempt to shock the fly with the racket led to an inevitable explosion that destroyed the kitchen and caused damage to the roof of the house.

The explosion left him with minor burns and his home is uninhabitable, according to local reports.

The fate of the fly is not known.
