    I have heard of similar events happening down the coal mines when they used to use re-enforced airbags filled with compressed air to temporarily hold up certain parts of the pit walls, miners used to take short-cuts across these by straddling them and have unfortunately in very rare events burst, blowing the unfortunate miners innards around in their bodies to an extent that they have died from their injuries.
