    A man died after he was hit in the head by a flying piece of metal from a condom machine that he and two accomplices blew up in an apparent robbery attempt, police in Germany said Monday, NBC News reported.

    The 29-year-old man was taken to hospital on Christmas Day in the western town of Schoeppingen, near the Dutch border, by the two other men.

    All three had fled the scene of the explosion in a car, leaving behind condoms and money scattered around the gutted vending machine.
