Dozens burned after fireworks malfunction at wrestling event
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) – Fire officials in Orlando, Florida say a fireworks malfunction at a Wrestlemania event caused minor burns to about 40 people.
They say at least three people were taken to a hospital for treatment, but that none of the injuries was serious.
It happened last night as the Florida Citrus Bowl Stadium was packed for the wrestling event. A fire department spokesman says a cable holding the fireworks collapsed at the end of the show, sending hot embers from the fireworks into the crowd. He says there were burn injuries “up and down the stadium.”
