A Texas man died after shooting a firework off his chest Tuesday, becoming the second person killed by lighting a firework off his body this week. Justin Bartek, a 30-year-old postal worker, was lighting fireworks with friends at the Dollar Hole fishing spot off the Colorado River in Columbus early Tuesday, KPRC reported. http://i.***************/i/pix/2015/07/08/06/2A53764F00000578-3153039-image-a-5_1436331758838.jpg He put the device, a Medieval Knight, to his chest, and it exploded, critically injuring him, ABC13 reported. He later died at an area hospital. Bartek leaves behind a 3-year-old son, Braxton, and his longtime partner, Summer Jenkins. "He was the light of many people's lives and the world to the people that knew him, and he would give the world to any that asked," friend Erica Jackson told KPRC, noting his "infectious spirit." Friends of his mother, Butter Bartek, consoled her for the loss of such a "great person" on Facebook. "He would hug me every time he would see me!" Marilyn Hinze wrote. "His smile would just absorb you." An autopsy will be conducted to determine the exact manner Bartek died and whether he meant to light it off his chest, officials said. Bartek's brother was injured in a July 4 accident, his mother said, without specifying. On Saturday, 22-year-old Devon Staples died after waving a lit firework, which he thought was a dud, near his head at a backyard party in Maine, his family told the Daily News.
