UFO in Inner Mongolia - beware of those Chinese saunas!

Boiler Kills on Impact After Sauna Launch

BEIJING (Reuters) - A boiler that exploded at a Chinese sauna sailed over a six-story building and landed on an old man crossing the road, Xinhua news agency said.

The 63-year-old pedestrian was killed instantly and three people injured in Sunday's bizarre accident in Baotou, Inner Mongolia, Xinhua quoted local police as saying.

"A passerby tried to escape when he saw the large object flying toward him, but he was hurt in his leg," Xinhua said. "Two workers in a restaurant next to the bathhouse were also injured after a wall of the restaurant collapsed."

The explosion of the boiler, measuring two-meters (six-and-a-half-feet) across, is under investigation.
