The photos below are the result of a fellow digging in the field with his posthole digger on the back of his tractor.

He hit a cross-country high pressure natural gas line.

They never did find him.

Cojack I did a little diggin ( no pun intended ) on this. It was actually caused by a failure in the pipe itself. Google appomattox gas line explosion and yall can read the newspaper article. That is still freakin crazy.
