According to reports, the man, in his 80s, was about to tuck into his dinner when he became irritated by a fly buzzing around him.

He picked up an electric racket designed to kill bugs and start swatting at it – but a gas canister was leaking in his Dordogne home.

A reaction between the racket and the gas caused an explosion, destroying the kitchen and partly damaging the roof of the home in Parcoul-Chenaud village.

It is unknown what happened to the fly, though the unnamed man had a lucky escape, sustaining just a burn to the hand.

He’s staying at a local campsite while his family repairs his house in the Parcoul-Chenaud village, according to news outlet Sud-Ouest.
