That guy needs to toughen up, looks like he lost an arm with that pose! Take a hint from the guy that got slashed nearly to death a couple of days back at the new roundabout. Not gonna post unedited pics but that was brutally nasty!Image

No idea how he did that, the fireworks on the beach are all pretty limp. The 20 shot launcher is about the only thing to do any potential damage, and you can't run round firing it at people

once i narrowly had an accident too, some tourists didnt buried it deep enough and didnt packed the sand tightly around it, so when it started going off the force knocked it down and instead of the fireworks going straight up, it went into the sittings nearby, luckily it was low season and it was almost finish so only a few rounds went into the sitting areas

A month and a half ago, a little kid was badly injured on Occheuteal and there was a police "clampdown" on the selling of fireworks which lasted about 48 hours.

Drunk people setting off fireworks, probably a good idea to stay well back I would have thought :)
