A 25-year-old chemistry student died when he chewed chemically treated gum that exploded and blew off part of his face.

"A loud pop was heard from the student's room," the ukranews.com portal said, citing an aide to the city's police chief. "When his relatives entered the room they saw that the lower part of the young man's face had been blown off."
