(Scroll down for video) A man was thrown into the air during an explosion caused by his cigarette butt.

Surveillance video showed the man throwing his cigarette butt through a hole in the sidewalk, before it blew up in his face.

The video of the explosion, which took place in Teheran, Iran, was posted to Twitter on Monday, by user @xerxesss. The video begins by showing a well-dressed man standing next to the sewer on the sidewalk.

The man empties a bag of what appears to be stones and debris before kicking them into the small opening of the sewer.

About 15 minutes later, the smoker came along. He threw his cigarette butt into the sewer hole and he waited for a couple of seconds as he watched the cigarette butt go down the drain.

Suddenly, there was a loud boom sound as the sewer exploded and the man’s face became covered in concrete.

Luckily, the smoker survived. When the dust cleared, he was seen crawling away from the scene without his shoes, which were blown off his feet.
