If the voltage regulator fails and allows the alternator to overcharge the battery it will create hydrogen gas. The battery will swell and some of the fumes will escape at the battery caps. It will smell like boiled eggs. You probably had a slightly bad connection at the terminal and when you tuned the key it made a tiny spark and BOOM!!!!!!!!
NEVER! NEVER! jump/boost off another car when you smell boiled eggs................

Check your connections at the battery and also at the starter.
