A man was injured when a package exploded at a Maryland home Friday, police say.
Carroll County Sheriff Jim DeWees said the blast was intended for a person who lives in the Lineboro home where the explosion occurred, the Baltimore Sun reported. DeWees called it “an isolated incident.”
He said the 28-year-old man hurt in the blast is not facing life-threatening injuries and is “very lucky" to survive. Part of the home's exterior appeared to have been blown loose.
Michael Martel, a U.S. Postal Service inspector and public information officer, said the package did not travel through U.S. mail.
