The plaintiff was working in a building near its electrical box when it exploded and injured him. He sustained a fractured ulna that required surgery. He also sustained burns as a result of the explosion.
There was an explosion in a manhole in the street which supplied electricity to the building where the plaintiff works. The force of this explosion migrated through the conduit which supplied the power lines and when it got to the building’s electrical box it caused a second explosion.
