Man Critically Injured In Hash Oil Explosion
ROYAL OAK TWP. (WWJ) - An explosion that left a man who was producing hash oil in critical condition is being investigated as a workplace accident. 

It happened around 10:40 a.m. Friday at a building on Galaxie Avenue, along Wyoming Avenue between 8 Mile and 9 Mile roads. 

One man was rushed to a nearby hospital with a serious open head injury. Another uninjured man told police he heard the explosion and saw his friend on the floor.

Investigators determined hash oil was being produced at the location and obtained a search warrant for the building.  Hash oil is extracted from cannabis and can have a higher concentration of THC -- the main psychoactive ingredient in marijuana. 

The Michigan State Police bomb squad swept the building and Oakland County HAZMAT ensured the chemicals and instruments in the building were safe.

Once inside, officers located a pressurized canister that had damage consistent with the injuries sustained by the victim. Police believe high pressure inside the container forced the lid off the canister at a high rate of speed, striking the victim in the head.

The victim is currently in intensive care and was last listen in critical but stable condition. 

Police say due to the recent change in the law with marijuana possession, along with evidence collected at the scene, this is considered a workplace accident.

An investigation is ongoing.

Authorities are investigating whether a Buena Park motel room was being used as a drug lab after an explosion early Wednesday forced guests to evacuate.
The blast was reported shortly after midnight at the Motel 6 at 7051 Valley View St., according to the Orange County Fire Authority. Nothing was burning when crews arrived, but video from the scene showed smoke seeping into the hallway.

Longan farmer killed in blast after leaving chemicals in hot sun
A 30-year-old man was killed in an explosion in Chantaburi province on Tuesday afternoon, in an accident suspected of being caused by him leaving two chemical compounds – potassium chlorate and sodium chlorate – out in the hot sun pending mixing them with water for spraying on longan trees.

Following the report of a fatal blast at 12.40am, Ban Plaeng precinct superintendent Pol Colonel Chatchawan Tosopon led officials to inspect the scene, a two-storey wooden house in Tambon Ban Plaeng, in the province’s Pong Nam Ron district.  They found the body of Supraiwan Srisawat, torn apart by the impact of the explosion. The blast also damaged several nearby houses and two pickup trucks that were parked at the scene. Police found several more sacks of the chemical compounds at the deceased man’s garage. 
The police investigation initially found that Supraiwan had been mixing the two chemicals during hot weather, prior to spraying longan trees in order to boost growth. Officers therefore suspect a chemical reaction caused by high heat led to the explosion.

FSL team inspects blast site
A team of officials from the Forensic Science Laboratory visited Muneshwara Layout to ascertain the cause of an explosion that caused injuries to four children on Tuesday night. The blast occurred near a site where Bangalore Electricity Supply Company (Bescom) workers had allegedly taken up work next to a GAIL gas pipeline.

On Thursday, the Chief Secretary met senior officials from GAIL and civic agencies. According to sources who attended the meeting, Bescom was asked to bear the cost of the damage and take care of the medical expenses of the victims. The police suspect negligence on the part of the contractor who was drilling close to the pipeline.

“As per the guidelines, a minimum of 350 mm width has to be maintained from gas pipes while conducting any type of digging work, but this was not followed,” said a senior GAIL official, who attended the meeting.

The gas pipelines have been marked and are well-mapped, but this has not prevented a spate of accidents. Over the last six months, the GAIL pipeline network has been damaged at least six times by various agencies or private companies while digging roads.
