4 People Injured in 4th of July Fireworks Mishap in San Marcos

Four people sustained minor injuries during the 4th of July fireworks celebration at Bradley Park in San Marcos last Sunday.

The incident occurred at about 9:15 pm when one of the fireworks misfired and caused a table to tumble, which lead to other fireworks going off and firing on different directions.

One person was brought to Palomar Medical Center in Escondido, while the three others were treated on the scene.

The show was immediately stopped and the crowd was dispersed as firefighters and paramedics took control of the situation.

The city contracted Pyro Spectaculars by Souza to put on the fireworks show.
It is fortunate that it did not turn out worse than it did or the city and Pyro Spectaculars could be facing embarrassing personal injury lawsuits right now.

If I were the three other injured people from the fireworks accident, I would have gone with the paramedics to the hospital.

Although, it does not look like there is something wrong, it is better to be sure and have a doctor look at the injuries.

And if the injury is worse than they appear, seeking treatment after the accidents will help bolster your personal injury claim or lawsuit.
