Also, if that is supposed to be the chair... where is the blood from the boy it killed? surely if it killed him, even by shrapnel there should be some amount of blood.
but then again a little searching turned up this... http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/china/2007 ... 096611.htm
apparently china does not care what its own people use lol.. and I have to ask.. if this happened about a year and a half ago... why did they not change design of those chairs, and/or issue a recall?
If you hade a small ball of steel shoot straight up your ass, the bleeding would start massively internally. The boy would be off the chair long before the blood reached his pants or anywhere else.
Most office chairs that have the lever to move up and down use "pressurized gas cylinders". And if you've ever put them together you know the lever pushes a button up top. Most likely that button was a little metal cap about the size of a quarter or a touch bigger. And it was that cap/valve switch that got blown up the boys colon, shredding his innards nicely.
Most likely there wasn't anyone with any true level 2 or higher first aid training, so the boy wasn't rushed to the hospital, or treated immediately for shock while waiting for the ambulance service. If there was a true first aid attendant there, they would have gone through the ABC's and the boy probably would have lived after being rushed to ER for immediate surgery for internal hemorrhaging.
It's amazing what you learn when you become a level 2 (within 10 minutes of ambulance service) occupational first aid attendant.
Wow, now thats some information I don't think I could have come across by googling it thanks. and no that is not sarcasm.
