Security footage captured a crazy video of a man narrowly missing being smacked in the face by an exploding pool pump in Plano, Texas. Freezing temperatures this past Sunday took a toll on the pump, and the owner attempted to warm it up with an industrial heater.

He said the explosion was similar to what you would see if Elon Musk launched a rocket from his home. That's a pretty good description. Ha! This guy is lucky to have his head! Check out the crazy video below:

Pretty wild, huh? According to WFAA, the explosion occurred when the top of the filter pod broke loose after he turned the pump back on. If you've got a pool, you might want to take a peek at what he has to say about the ordeal in the original story here. It would be good to know what NOT to do in the event your pool pump freezes in this crazy weather.

Have you captured any crazy videos like this lately? I'd love to see them! You can feel free to share all of your winter mishaps with me at for a chance to be featured in an article!

Stay safe out there, friends! We'll make it to the other side of this nasty weather in no time. Pretty soon, we'll all be complaining about the heat. Enjoy the cold while you can!
