As always, people all over the country celebrated the birth of America by blowing up a small part of it.  And, in a few cases, a part of themselves.  Here’s your July 4th firework injury roundup:

#1.)  A 24-year-old man in Tampa may lose his left thumb and ring finger after he lit a fuse on a firework mortar yesterday and it exploded in his hand.  (Tampa Bay Times)

#4.)  A 19-year-old in Kenner, Louisiana lost his left hand Tuesday night and suffered, quote, “massive injuries” to his right hand, arms, and legs when he tried to remove the fuse from 144 sparklers duct taped together and they exploded.  (Bayou Buzz)

#5.)  And finally, on Tuesday night, a 46-year-old man in Pulaski County, Arkansas blew off his hand trying to celebrate Independence Day by firing off a homemade cannon.  It misfired.  (ABC 7 – Little Rock)
