WFTV.com in Florida reports that at least 35 people were injured at WrestleMania last night due to a pyrotechnics malfunction which sent fireworks and hot cables flying into crowded stands. Most of the fans suffered minor burns and went home with ice packs, but three fans had to be taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center. According to the fire department, nobody was “seriously hurt.” One fan complained about the incident afterwards.
“We had to sit up in the bleachers and wait for a paramedic to come. They didn’t really examine us. And we had to walk all the way down to first aid and had to ask for a bag of ice just to put on our head.”
I have heard reports that fireworks were spattering all over the ground and people were trying to avoid being burned. Numerous folks reported their jeans being burned.
