[Death after explosion of an "empty" acetone barrel].


PMID 24358622

Abstract

Inappropriate disposal of (hazardous) waste material led to an explosion of an acetone-air mixture in a metal barrel. The lid was blown off and caused blunt traumatization with fatal exsanguination. The case furnishes information relevant for the practical teaching of forensic knowledge and the indicated consultation of medico-legal experts already at scene.
