Police are hunting a customer who left a McDonald’s bathroom seconds before it exploded in Florida.
A $1,000 reward has been offered on the man who was captured on CCTV walking from the restaurant on North Orange Blossom Trail in Orange County on Sunday afternoon.
The blast in the men’s bathroom caused significant damage and caused diners to flee from the building.

Orange County Sheriff’s Captain Angelo Nieves told the Orlando Sentinel: ‘This explosion was dangerous.
‘It could have injured someone and this is a location where you have youngsters. You have young children and this could have caused harm to them.”
Thankfully, nobody was in the bathroom at the time of the explosion.
Ten minutes before the explosion, the man can be seen pacing outside the restaurant wearing a light tank top, shorts and a black back brace.
Having gone inside, he can then be seen leaving in a rush, and 30 seconds later the bathroom exploded.
Children were in the restaurant at the time, and they all had to be evacuated in order to allow the state fire marshal’s office and the hazardous device team to investigate.
Owner Bob Allegroe said the explosion was caused by an unknown device and that the restaurant would be closed while investigations are carried out.
