Exploding cigarette proves that smoking is dangerous
BEKASI: Police are investigating the case of an exploding cigarette, which injured Andi Susanto, a security guard in Cibitung, Bekasi.
The cigarette exploded when Andi was smoking while riding his motorcycle on Thursday.
"The cause of the explosion is unknown... we checked the motorcyle's gas tank to see if there was possibly a leakage of gasoline fumes that may have led to the incident, but we have found nothing yet," Bekasi Police chief Sr. Comr. Herry Wibowo was quoted as saying by news portal detik.com.
The explosion caused Andi to lose five of his front teeth and serious injury to his lips.
Herry said Andi bought the cigarettes from a vendor close to his house.
"It was my third cigarette while traveling to work," he said.
Andi is being treated at Adam Thalib Hospital in Cibitung. - JP
