8-Year-Old Boy Hospitalized After Dropping Firecrackers in the Sewer
An 8-year-old boy was recently hospitalized after he threw a firecracker down a manhole in China.
A parking lot surveillance camera captured the child launching up into the air after he is seen inserting the firecracker into a manhole in the Gansu city of Dunhuang. His friend can also be seen fleeing to safety as the boy dropped the explosive.
The cover exploded shortly after and it was sent flying for several seconds.
The boy, who was carried by the blast’s powerful force, was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment, Shanghaiist reports.
