This is remarkable video. A police officer decked out in a bomb suit is literally touching the side of a car when it explodes. Fortunately his suit protects him. Here is the description from the YT video (emphasis mine):
A bomb squad officer was lucky to escape serious injury when a car exploded in Thailand’s restive south on Friday. The officer, wearing a protective suit, was attempting to open the front passenger door of the parked car when the bomb exploded. Closed-circuit television footage showed the officer being thrown to the ground, but then picking himself up and walking away unhurt. Police later found an improvised explosive device in the vehicle. The incident was one of three attacks by suspected Muslim militants on government offices in the province of Narathiwat on Friday.
