Eye Witness Blog -- kind of

I looked this up on but didn't find anything. So it true? Who knows?

A kid in Lindsborg, KS had filled several balloons with acetylene and was shooting them with roman candles. We heard them go off about every 30 minutes or so. Then during the Lindsborg fireworks display at the college we heard the ambulances racing over towards my house. On the way home we saw all of the firemen & police at a house behind Viking Motorcycle company.

Later I learned that the kid was Loren Dauer, son of Ron & Mae Dauer. I guess he had about 3 or 4 balloons left in the backseat of the truck, and when he reached in to pull one of them out he slid it just enough to cause static & BOOOOOOM!!!!!! He spent a little time in ICU in Wichita, but is at home now. He blew out both eardrums, had to have a lot of shards of glass pulled from his torso, face, & eyeballs. His nephew was either in the truck or close enough by that it blew part of his face off & required 30 some stitches to get it back. You see the damage to the truck, but the garage it was by was moved partly off of its foundation, and the people sitting in their lawn chairs watching this activity were jolted several feet backwards out of their chairs. Why he is still alive I don't know. You probably will say that was freakin' stupid, but think back on how many times you've done stupid things & lived to tell about it. I hea! r he is doing as good as can be expected. I hope maybe he learned a lesson. God Speed Loren!! These pictures tell the real story!

God Speed ....???? only if this sofa king stupid idiot is commiting sucide way out in the country where he can't hurt any one else

Yeah, next time he will have the damn things in the back of the truck instead of in the cab.


No, sorry. The damage in the pictures doesn't conform to blast damage, and acetylene isn't that powerful, particularly when contained only by a balloon. Someone has a piss poor understanding of explosion physics, most likely nourished by Saturday morning cartoons.

It takes more than 30 stitches to put even part of someone's face back on, for comparison, I had a buddy in tech school get 45 just to sew up a couple of cuts with a total length of less than 3 inches.

As a clincher, if an explosion happened inside a truck, the only glass that could possibly blast back at the occupants would be from the rear view mirror and gauge cover. The rest, of course, would be blown outwards. But an explosion that powerfull would have done much more damage than simply blowing out his eardrums. It would most likely have broken ever bone in his body.

If the pictures aren't tweaked, it sure looks like something exploded from the inside out. Even the bed of the truck, behind the cab, is rounded towards the exterior. I definitely don't know shit about explosives (beyond loading my guns) so don't think I'm making any claims. I definitely concur with Mr. Bowen about the glass, stitches and bones. Guess I'm scratching my head, what would cause this type of damage???


A co worker - ADULT co worker - was filling garbage bags with acetylene. He was patting one to smooth it to fill evenly and it blew from static. Blew out his eardrums, etc. This is real.


He comes to the conclusion that, although the story *might* be real, the pictures aren't
