Anybody have any good fireworks accident stories from this past weekend?
I was out at my dad's house for the 4th and he had bought $200+ in fireworks. Good ones that shoot up like the ones in shows. They are called mortars. Anyway, after me and this other kid were lighting them all off. About 5 minutes into the show, one the other kid lit exploded either before it left the launch tube, or just after. Anyway, one of the fireballs it launched hit me in my forearm, bounced and hit me just to the left of my nipple and burned a hole in my shirt and my chest. (i got a 3rd degree burn on my forearm and just a little one on my chest) Next, the ball then fell into the box of fireworks that had yet to be set off. i saw it fall in there so i took off right away. and wouldnt you know it, with in 30 seconds, we didnt have any fireworks left. about 200 mortars went off. it was soooo awesome. anyway, waste of fireworks, but the Finale was something to be seen.
