“The man was cleaning out the building after the previous owner and burning things. There was an explosion and he was seriously injured,” police spokeswoman Barbora Šmaterová told Deník, adding that a pyrotechnician, a forensic expert and a technician from the Department of Forensic Technology and Expertise were sent to the scene. What exactly exploded is still under investigation, according to a spokesman. “We have initiated criminal proceedings in the matter on suspicion of committing the offense of serious bodily harm due to negligence,” added Šmaterová. According to the findings of the Journal, one possibility is that the cannon exploded.
