Default String Snapped while stringing - Blood + Whiplash!

I was stringing a racket the other day with my shirt off (I live in a very hot climate). I was pulling it around 30kg as I like my tension tight. This strings I had were Pro Hurricane tour but I get them from China so I am a little suspicious (although they do feel reasonably good).

Anyways as I'm pulling on the mains, the string just snaps, flies back and as I was standing in the line of fire whips me on the abdominals, drawing blood. I also have a nice red line down my torso where the string hit me.

Pretty dangerous, had I bent down to get something it could well have blinded me. This happened to anyone else?
