There are some pretty dangerous occupations out there. Whether you’re a trawlerman, an oilrig worker, or Naomi Campbell’s PA – you’re taking your life in your own hands on a daily basis.
Well now you can add Belgian postman to the list of world’s deadliest jobs after it was discovered that the electric bikes they use to get around are prone to exploding.
“Last week, we had one battery on one bicycle, smoke came out and the postman immediately stopped and he took away the battery and it exploded,” said a spokesman for bpost.
It follows a fire in another Belgian post office where batteries were being recharged overnight, although it is still unclear if a battery caused the fire.
All sounds a bit sinister to us. Where’s Poirot when you need him?
