Warning: May just make you feel a little sick… (deep breath)
Shoppers in a busy commercial street were left covered in human excrement after an overfilled septic tank exploded.
The foul incident took place when the tank on board a truck erupted in Hechi City in southern China.
A witness to the incident, Dong Tang, told local television: ‘I noticed some people gathered in the street and thought there had been a car accident.
‘I wasn’t really paying attention, but then the smell hit me, it was disgusting.
‘And then I realised that a tank filled with disgusting brown liquid had exploded, splattering it all over the street and the people who were shopping or walking past.’
Police spokesman, Cai Chin, told reporters: ‘No one suffered physical harm, but many of those covered sought medical attention for fear that chemicals used in the cleaning process or indeed diseases from the sludge could cause harm to those affected by the blast.’
A spokesman for the company which collects and stores the waste refused responsibility, claiming it was a technical fault with the truck itself.
