A Brooklyn man has to flush with a rope a "safe distance away" after his toilet exploded last week, sending shrapnel into his face, arms and legs.

The accident occurred after his apartment building turned off the water so that a contractor could install a backflow prevention valve.

The 58-year-old man — who now plans to sue the building's management company — pulled the toilet handle around 11 p.m. to test the water pressure, and the bowl exploded in what he called a "porcelain bomb."

He was briefly knocked unconscious and required 30 stitches that left a scar across his face.

According to a lawyer for the co-op, four other toilets in the building also exploded.

"The only conclusion anybody has reached — and they're still investigating — is that there was a buildup of air pressure in the pipes so that when it came back on, the pressure was just pushed through the pipe and caused the explosion," she told AFP.

He is usually the one exploding into the toilet, this is probably just years of revenge coming back to haunt him.
