FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) – A Florida man is recovering from a fireworks-related injury to his hand.
Local news outlets report the mishap happened Monday afternoon in Fort Lauderdale.
Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue Deputy Chief Timothy Heiser says the 25-year-old man was taken to a hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening.
News outlets report that a man in nearby Plantation lost at least one finger while handling a firework. And in 2015, New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul mangled his right hand when a firework exploded in Coral Springs.
