Remember This in July

Blogger GruntDoc works in an emergency room, and has posted x-ray images of a patient's hand which was damaged by fireworks on New Year's Eve. The patient was holding a tube firework in his hand for launching, and "damaged" is an understatement. For comparison, a normal (intact) hand looks like this on x-ray.

Note: I'm notoriously wary of fireworks. There is typically too much drinking and/or carelessness associated with their use to suit me, in addition to the melted bra incident.

See my previous related post with a list of online fireworks safety resources.
