You Pick Up A Plastic Bottle Bomb.

(Note:  You may want to forward this to your friends and family.)

Everyone needs to know this and be careful!!!


Vandals are putting Drano, tin foil, and a little water in plastic drink bottles and capping it up - leaving it on lawns, in mail boxes, in gardens, on driveways etc. just waiting for you to pick it up intending to put it in the rubbish, but you'll never make it!!!
If the bottle is picked up, and the bottle is shaken even just a little - in about 30 seconds or less it builds up enough gas which then explodes with enough force to remove some of your extremities. The liquid that comes out is boiling hot as well.
Don't pick up any plastic bottles that may be lying in your yards or in the gutter, etc.
 

Pay attention to this. A plastic bottle with a CAP.  A little Drano. A little water. A small piece of foil.  Disturb it by moving it; and BOOM!!
No fingers left and other serious effects to your face, eyes, etc.

Michael Buzbee As an eye doctor, I can tell you that if this happens to you, don't call 911, or call the eye doctor, get in the shower and rinse your eyes for 30 minutes before trying to find medical care. Drano is the most dangerous thing you can get in your eyes. It will put your eyes out much faster than battery acid.

If another person is near you, then he certainly should call emergency services (911 in the US), to try to get emergency assistance as soon as possible. Thank you Dr. Buzbee.
