A Houston woman believed to be the wife of an oil executive was hospitalized after a package she received that looked like a box of chocolates exploded when she opened it, FOXNews.com reported Monday.
Investigators said the box arrived at the victim's house several weeks ago, but did not explode until she opened it Friday night, KTRK-TV reported.
Friends of the women said her face was instantly pelted with nails and tacks, and shrapnel blew so high it landed on the roof of her home, the station reported.
Family members told KTRK that the woman, who is in her 60s, had surgery Saturday and is in stable condition.
The house is owned by an oil company executive, the station reported.
