Exclamation Man Critically Hurt In Hail Of Shrapnel From Homemade Firework

SEATAC, Wash. -- A 64-year-old SeaTac man was critically injured when homemade fireworks exploded on the Fourth of July, the King County Sheriff’s Department said.

Deputies said they were called to a house in the 2800 block of South 138th Street shortly before 11 p.m. while the victim was en route to Harborview Medical Center.

Deputies were told a 52-year-old man who lived at the house built a homemade “aerial device” by tying together a bundle of sparklers, police said.

Investigators said the man placed the sparklers in a tube and then into a concrete cinder block to brace it. When the man lit the device, instead of launching it exploded in place, sending pieces of concrete shrapnel in all directions.

Police said the victim was standing about 15 to 20 feet away when the device detonated. He was hit in the head by part of the cinder block, causing a serious head injury, which, according to the fire department, was life-threatening, the Sheriff’s Department said.

Other pieces of the block struck a nearby car, denting the door and breaking the window. The house and the garage door were also hit.

Both men live at the home along with the victim’s adult daughter. No one else was injured.

The Sheriff's Office Major Crimes Unit and Bomb Disposal Unit are investigating.

bundling the sparklers tightly together makes an explosive device. Without a substantial housing to direct the burning powder's energy, it just made the tube and concrete block shrapnel for the explosion.
