Police say a Surry County man suffered life-threatening injuries when a homemade device exploded.
Virginia State Police spokeswoman Sgt. Michelle Cotten says victim Peter Bohlander apparently was building a pipe bomb that went off about 4 p.m. Tuesday.
Cotten says Bohlander was flown to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital. Most of his injuries were to his torso. A welding mask apparently shielded his face.
Bohlander was listed in critical condition Tuesday evening.
