Twenty-five people celebrating the New Year were wounded after a defective flying firework failed to launch and instead exploded on the ground in Dagupan City, Pangasinan on Monday.

The victims sustained wounds in different parts of their body after lighting up what appeared to be a faulty firework, Radyo Inquirer reported.


Instead of shooting up high in the air, the firework remained stationary on the ground after being lit.


The firework then exploded while still on the ground, catching a lot of revelers by surprise.

Children watching the display were also injured by the shower of sparks.

The victims were later discharged from the hospital after undergoing first aid. with a report from Len Montaño/Radyo Inquirer /jpv
