A SIX-year-old boy was killed after pals allegedly inserted a nozzle up his backside and blasted compressed air into his bowels.
Kanha Yadav was playing at his father’s factory in Madhya Pradesh’s Indore, in India, when he fell victim to the deadly prank.

Devastated Ramchandra Yadav has now told how two of his son’s friends brought his son home with a massively swollen stomach.
The boy was taken to Maharaja Yeshwantrao hospital on Sunday but later died of his shocking injuries.
Police inspector Sanjay Shukla told NDTV: “The father of the deceased works in a factory in Palda industrial area and lives with his family on the premises.
“We have come to know that the boy’s friends filled his abdomen with air by inserting an air compressor’s nozzle into his rectum when they were playing.”
The youngster’s body has now been sent to the local coroner for a post-mortem to determine the exact cause of death.
In May we told how a man’s bowels exploded after his “pals” put a compressed air pump into his anus and inflated it.
The 30-year-old suffered “rectal blowout” after the cruel prank leaving doctors in New Delhi with no choice but to remove his entire bowel.
The injury is caused when air pressure inside the rectum rises so high that it explodes, doctors said.
While his case is extraordinary, it wasn’t a one-off in the northern region of India, according to an article published in the Journal of Medical Case Reports.
Doctors from the Maulana Azad Medical College in New Delhi and the All India Institute of Medical Sciences in Rishikesh reported similar injuries in two other men.
They likened their life-changing injuries to those usually “confined to battlefields”.
In September, we showed video of the moment a Indian factory worker was fatally injured when he was pranked by his boss – who blasted air up his bum.
