SEATTLE — Several people around the Seattle area got a tough lesson in the dangers of fireworks this Fourth of July weekend.
Harborview Medical Center reported 36 people were injured in some way by fireworks between July 3-6 this year, of which 20 had to be admitted into the hospital.
Of those 20, seven suffered injuries grave enough to require amputation, be it fingers or an entire hand, according to a Harborview spokesperson.
Many others sustained broken bones and soft tissue injuries to their hands, but didn’t require amputation, the spokesperson said.
