Explosion in toilet seriously hurts man after he lights cigarette.

BRISBANE - A MAN suffered life-threatening burns on Monday after a portaloo he was using exploded apparently after he lit a cigarette. The victim, who was taking part in a joint Australia-United States military exercise at the time, was rushed to hospital with burns to his head, face, arms, chest and airways after the incident at Rockhampton airport. 'There was some sort of explosion in a portaloo. It's believed the man was lighting a cigarette at the time,' a Department of Community Safety spokesman said.
