What happened to Matt Brown?

According to some Alaskans, Matt Brown filled a mason jar with gunpowder and cannon fuse and intended to store it in an old refrigerator. Before Matt knew it, the mason jar exploded in the fridge. The explosion was so strong that it blew the refrigerator door of its hinges. The door landed on Matt’s head injuring him severely.

After the accident, Matt Brown, Billy Brown’s oldest son, was transported via medic to the hospital where his injury was taken care of. Matt, 32, reportedly received nine staples in his head and was then released.

When exactly was Matt Brown injured?

Matt’s explosion accident took place in Browntown on Tuesday evening, May 23. Since it was night time, the film crew would not have been filming on the set of Browntown, but they were reportedly nearby on the boat dock.

Footage showing the medics responding to injured Matt shows the medics arriving and telling Billy Brown’s oldest son that they will take care of him. The footage was most likely taken from a distance by film crew members.
