Farmer burned by super heated alcohol
A farmer is recovering after his home-made schnapps still exploded with a blast so powerful it ripped the wall off his house.
The farmer - who ran a distillery to boost business in Entschendorf, Styria - was adjusting the still when it blew up, showering him with boiling schnapps.
Paramedic Johann Kains said: "He suffered severe second degree burns and has been put in an artificial coma."
Fire investigators are sifting through the debris to find the cause of the blast.
