ATLANTA, Ga. — A Georgia man lost one of his legs last week when he reportedly shot at a lawn mower that was filled with explosives.

The whole incident was caught on video.

WXIA reports that a 911 caller said David Pressley, 32, was shooting at a mixture of ammonium nitrate and aluminum powder and had “possibly blown his legs off from the explosion.”

Video shows the man continuously shooting at the lawn mower. He gets a little closer, and on his last shot, the lawn mower blows up.

The man is heard yelling, “I blew my leg off.”

After it happened, the man’s friends helped him to the roadway, where they were met by safety crews.

He’s now recovering in the hospital.
