Toilet explodes after teen plays with lighter.

A SCHOOLBOY playing with his dad's lighter was blown out of his toilet and through a window when the lavatory exploded.

The room turned into an orange fireball when Dennis Bueller, 14, began playing with the lighter after he had sprayed air freshener.

The boy, from Recklinghausen, Germany, was rushed by ambulance to hospital and later transferred to a specialist burns unit.

He suffered burns over his face, upper body and legs and will need months of treatment. His dad Artur said: "I pray every day for my son's recovery."
