Teen Injured After Attempt To Blow Up Turtles
Posted Tuesday, May 7th 2013 @ 7am

A 19-year-old Texas man has retreated into his shell after a botched attempt to blow up turtles.

The teen suffered injuries to his hand, lower extremities and face after a bomb he made detonated while en route to a local bayou – where he and his 18-year-old buddy had plans to go "blow up turtles."

At some point, the 19-year-old lit a cigar, and the ashes fell near his pocket where he was carrying the explosive cartridges. Local police say it’s likely the ashes ignited the cartridges.

The 18-year-old was not injured in the explosion. So far there have been no arrests made in connection with the incident.
