Donald Adams has probably heard that smoking is bad for your health; he’s probably heard that second hand smoke is bad for the health of those around him as well. He apparently doesn’t care. In fact, he doesn’t even care if his smoking starts a combustible dust explosion, as long as he can get his nicotine fix because Mr. Adams decided to light up and have a cigarette while underground in a cold mine in Pennsylvania.
You can read the full story at the miningaustralia.com.au website. The article is entitled Idiot of the week: Miner charged with smoking in underground mine.
Interestingly, Mr. Adams admit that the cigarette butt that they found in the mine, deep underground is actually his but he denies smoking it. Not quite sure how that would work!
