A man has lost his arm after a beer keg he was tapping exploded at a bowling club in Newcastle.
Police, fire crews and paramedics were called to the Bar Beach Bowling Club just after 8:00pm last night and quickly evacuated 40 staff and patrons from the venue.
Chief Inspector Dean Olsen said the 23-year-old staff member was releasing the air from a beer keg when it exploded.
“The information that we have got from witnesses is that an explosion occurred in the cool room or store room of the club,” he said.
