Video: This incredible footage shows what an exploding fireworks factory looks like

This video starts with a bang...

We've all grown up in an age where most Hollywood action films usually feature a massive explosion and fireball but this footage of some real-life pyrotechnics absolutely amazed us.

This clip was taken from Bogota, Colombia, as the sheer force of the explosion at the nearby fireworks factory is so powerful that it blows the cameraman off his feet and into the street.

The sheer volume and impact of the explosion is stunning but what's even more amazing and lucky is that only one person was injured as a result, a passing truck driver who was treated for “superficial shrapnel wounds”.

Take a look.
