Fireworks-related injuries killed 36 people between 2000 and 2005. Two teenagers had been among the four reported deaths this past year, the commission said. Accidental injuries to those under age group 20 accounted for 55 % of last year’s figures, and 13-year-older Kelsey Carpenter of Pleasant Town, Ohio, was included in this. Carpenter, now 14, was lighting a small number of sparklers for several youngsters when the initial one ignited others, plus they all proceeded to go off simultaneously, she recalled. I appeared down and my hands was burning, she said. The full total result was third-degree burns requiring two times in the hospital and many months of therapy. Her left hands bears permanent scars. The er doctor explained that it had been like keeping welding rods; they burn off at 150 degrees Fahrenheit, said her mom, Paula Carpenter.
