Default Compressed air accident inflates man

The valve lodged under his skin and he quickly inflated in size.

Perhaps the best quote of the story is:

“You can’t turn a tap on and let it out,” McCormack said. “You just have to fart it out, or burp it out.”

That's one bizarre incident... I wonder what would have happened if they hadn't turned of the air supply?
