Sled man’s rocket-contraption backpack explodes on him

Police have yet to release the man’s name, denying a Michigan man unrealized internet fame.  All we know is that he’s 62-years-old and every year he throws an awesome outdoor party in Independence where he does some sort of Jack Ass style stunt. 

This year, our hero filled a used automotive muffler with gasoline and gunpowder, rigged the muffler to his backpack, and then hopped on a sled.  An accomplice lit the wick of this genius contraption.  Oakland County Undersheriff Mike McCabe told the Detroit Free Press that the man was “trying to get a rocket-launch effect.”

Instead he received a bomb effect.  The muffler exploded, burning our hero over 18% of his body.  Police confiscated the orange plastic sled (pictured), which surely belongs protected in a museum somewhere.
