Around 10 p.m. Saturday, a 66-year-old man was severely injured after a lit – possible illegal – firework detonated in his hand. The man said his neighbor had found the firework and gave it to him.
The man was transported from Tilghman Island to the Curtis National Hand Center in Baltimore for treatment, Maryland’s Fire Marshal’s Office said.
According to authorities, a child found “an unknown type of suspected illegal” firework or explosive. The juvenile gave the firework to his neighbor, who lit it outside his home.
