McGill student injured in lab explosion

March 10, 2009

A McGill University student was sent to hospital with minor injuries to his face Monday afternoon after his chemistry experiment exploded, resulting in the evacuation of the Otto Maass Chemistry Building. The student was lifting the lid of a glass box containing the experiment when the explosion occurred, sending glass shards into his face and neck. Some papers and boxes in the laboratory caught on fire, but were quickly extinguished. Montreal Gazette
