...and this is why amateurs shouldn't be lighting off professional fireworks. In a trailer court, no less.

He's liable to end up as a Darwin award candidate, but you have to feel horribly for him and his wife and kids.

I have taken class B fireworks safety classes, and have seen first hand what a simple 2" salute will do to a chicken (whole dead chicken you buy in a grocery store). There is a reason professional fireworks they aren't sold to the public.

And we don't even know if this was class B he was playing with. For all we know, it could have just been some home made device.

But of course FIREWORKS get's everyone excited. Makes great headlines.
