Man Dies After Attempting to Shoot Fireworks From Top of Head

http://wgntv.com/2015/07/05/man-shoo...his-head-dies/


CALAIS, Maine — Maine State Police say a man celebrating the Fourth of July died when he tried to launch a firework off the top of his head.

Stephen McCausland, a spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety, says 22-year-old Devon Staples of Calais had been setting off fireworks with friends on Saturday night in the backyard of a friend’s home.

He says Staples placed a fireworks mortar tube on his head and set it off, injuring his head. He died instantly.

Police say the friends had been drinking.

McCausland says Staples’ death marks Maine’s first fireworks fatality since the state legalized fireworks several years ago.

Calais is in eastern Maine, on the Canadian border near New Brunswick.

So you couldn't let off fireworks 7 years ago but you could own an arsenal of guns? Makes perfect sense.

Man Shoots Fireworks Off Head and Dies Instantly. (no Pics)

apologize for not having pics to post but am sure some will ultimately show up. I was just so horrified at how stupid this is. What a waste......
(Don't post much so hope I did this right.)
