New Straits Times - - World -

SYD­NEY: A woman in Aus­tralia suf­fered burns to her face and arms when a bas­ket­ball ex­ploded as she picked it up, po­lice said on Tues­day as they sought an ex­pla­na­tion for the bizarre in­ci­dent. De­tec­tives said the 21-year-old was walk­ing along a beach in Mel­bourne when she spot­ted the ball on the sand. “As she went to pick it up, it ex­ploded, leav­ing her with burns to her face, head and fore­arms,” Vic­to­ria state po­lice said. The Ar­son and Ex­plo­sive Squad re­cov­ered the ball and were in­ves­ti­gat­ing.
