Officials stated that incident with fireworks happened during the Uncle Sam’s birthday celebration in the town of Avon, Colorado. Nine people were injured.

At the Avon’s annual ‘Salute to the USA’ show a few fireworks shells failed to function in a normal manner and went right into a large number of people gathered together to celebrate the Independence Day in Colorado.

According to police reports, nine human beings were injured. They were treated by team of medics at the scene. All of injured had minor abrasion burns so none of them was hospitalized.

Avon’s officials praised the rescuing team of medics as well as the police as they immediately responded to the incident.

The firework show had to last for 23 minutes, but about 17 minutes after its beginning the fireworks’ explosion took place. So the celebration end up with numerous injuries instead of amusement with the fire-show.

As an eyewitness Jane Imber stated, a lot of people were at the scene when ‘two or three’ fireworks shells appeared in the crowd of viewers.

There was not a lot of room in between groups of people, so when it happened no one could really get up and run. It was so scary

– claimed the woman.

US government as well as police have been warning Americans that using fireworks could have fatal consequences and even filmed a special video to show people on the examples how dangerous fireworks can be for human being. However, here is the real examples of nine injured. Besides, the fire-show was made by specialists, so try to imagine how could have ended up using fireworks on your own.
