image for Anesthesiologist passes gas
Explosion also damaged hospital roof

Horror erupted in the course of routine back surgery on hospital patient Morris Murcheon, 31, and he slept through the entire ordeal.

Mavis Brincheton, M.D., said that the explosion, triggered by the laser cautery device she was holding at the time, knocked her 'on her keister' and that her surgical gown was smoldering.

Bart Burgeon, the anesthesiologist implicated in the combustion, was rushed to the emergency ward as a result, suffering from burst hemorrhoids.

'We were nearing the end of the surgical procedure, sealing off capillaries with laser cautery', Brincheton said. 'Burgeon emitted a stupendous flatus, which startled me with its percussive force. When the laser intersected the torrential exhalation gusting from the region of his buttocks, it ignited ferociously, erupting in a ball of flame, accompanied by a thunderclap of deafening proportions.'

She managed to complete the operation on Mr. Murcheon with no further incident.

'I'm sorry I slept through the whole thing', Murcheon said. 'From the sound of things, it easily would have surpassed anything we attempted in Army barracks.'
