    California man blows off hands with fireworks

    Jul 6, 3:50 PM (ET)

    SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — A Northern California man igniting illegal fireworks blew off both of his hands when a device exploded prematurely, police said.

    Officer Albert Morales of the San Jose Police Department said the man in his 40s is expected to live. The explosive went off in the man's hands as family members stood nearby late on the Fourth of July holiday.

    "It would have had to have been something pretty powerful," Morales told the San Jose Mercury News (http://bit.ly/1vOfnsx)

    The newspaper also reported that two other men were seriously injured in Sunnyvale while lighting a mortar-like explosive on Friday.

    The Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety said that at 10 p.m. the men — ages 41 and 32 — were hurt at an apartment complex when the illegal firework ignited prematurely. Witnesses in a group of about 20 people said the men had been trying to ignite the firework when it went off in their hands, officials reported.

    One man lost fingers on his left hand and finger tips on the right hand, while officials said the other man lost part of his right hand.

    Yeah, that second moron they mentioned in Sunnyvale? Happened down the street from me. All of Sunnyvale's firemen/cops showed up for it. Hope there wasn't any crime going on anywhere else.
