    In a previous life I worked in and around Health & Safety. You'd be surprised how many people die or are seriously injured from exploding truck or heavy equipment tyres. It's a real thing and that young man is doing it properly.

    This guy wasn't too smart, so just nature weeding out the low end of the gene pool. Condolences to his family and friends.

    I thought the tyre went in the cage, not the guy? I've heard of holes in truck shed roof from the split rim, guys having arms amputated, etc. I grew up with split rims, but didn't know the danger at the time. And that it is not just when fitting them.
