Explosion on Set of 'Dom-2' Reality TV Show

A gas tank exploded on the grounds of the long-running "Dom-2" reality show on Friday, the result of which two people were injured, including one victim who lost both hands.

The explosion occurred in a service structure on the premises and did not injure any of the show's participants, Life News reported.

One victim sustained a broken hip and lost his hands in the explosion, medics told Life News.

This is not the first detonation on the "Dom-2" set. In April last year a security guard for the show discovered a small bomb that went off as he picked it up. The guard lost his right hand in the incident.

The bomb had been set by a disgruntled would-be contestant who had failed to make it onto the show.
