This is the first picture of a British man who was killed in front of his fiancée when a “faulty” firework exploded in his face just minutes into the new year.

The man, named locally as 50-year-old Gary McLaren, was celebrating the arrival of 2020 with friends in the party resort of Pattaya, eastern Thailand, when the tragedy happened at 12.30am local time.

He died after he stepped outside the Miami A Gogo strip club and brought out a 50cm (20in) tube packed with rockets while surrounded by dancers in the street, according to local reports.

Moments later, when he twice tried to light the firework it exploded and inflicted gruesome head injuries, killing him on the spot.

Witnesses said the Brit had tried to set off the firework with a lighter, but failed.

When he tried a second time, smoke began to pour from the device before it exploded in his face, knocking him backwards onto the ground.

Kritsada Ratprachoom, 44, of Udon Thani in northeastern Thailand, felt something slimy in his behind after he finished doing his business on Monday, The Mirror reported.

Pope Francis Compares Trump to Herod, Who Tried to Kill Jesus

Pope Francis has compared U.S. President Donald Trump to the murderous King Herod who massacred innocent children in ancient Palestine while trying to kill the baby Jesus, a Jesuit journal revealed Thursday.

Speaking with his brother Jesuits during his recent visit to Thailand, the Argentinian pope minced no words in his thinly veiled condemnation of the U.S. president and his administration, suggesting that like a modern-day Herod, Mr. Trump separates families at the border while allowing drugs to freely flow into the country.

“In other parts there are walls that even separate children from parents. Herod comes to mind,” Francis said. “Yet for drugs, there’s no wall to keep them out.”
