You thought your Christmas was bad? Try being the 29-year-old German who died during an explosion involving a condom dispenser.
According to the reports, the man and his two friends stole the condom machine and then attached a homemade bomb to the vending machine in hopes of being rewarded with that sweet safe sex money.
But things didn’t exactly go as planned. The victim didn’t close the door in time, and while trying to take cover, he was struck in the head by a steel shard from the explosion. His two friends rushed him to the hospital, but he later died from his injuries.
When hospital staff asked the guys what happened, they lied and said their friend had fallen down some stairs. Obviously, the employees didn’t believe the story and decided to call police. Once the police questioned the two men, they admitted that their friend was injured during the explosion.
It’s hard to find “good news” in a story like this, but I guess it’s a good sign that his friends at least tried to save his life. They could have grabbed all the money and left the scene.
Instead, they decided their friend’s life was more important. Isn’t that adorable?
