Teenager attempts suicide by exploding firecracker in mouth
The incident took place in February in the central Russian city of Ufa, the Lifenews.ru website reported Friday. The 18-year-old, whose name was given as Azat G., got into a row with his parents over missing classes in school. At some point, the teenager locked himself in a toilet and after a short time his parents heard a loud explosion.
As they broke the door they saw their son on the floor in a pool of blood. The man was delivered to a local hospital with nasty injuries to his face, mouth and jaw. It appeared that he had exploded a powerful Chinese-made firecracker in his mouth.
The operation to save Azat lasted for six hours. After a lengthy rehabilitation period, the man was discharged from hospital, but even now he is not capable to speech and communicates with other people by written notes.
