Firework Accident Wrestlemania

We now have more information on yesterday’s fireworks malfucntion at WrestleMania 24:

Apparently almost 4 dozen people were burned after some fireworks malfunctioned at wrestleMania XXIV. Here’s some more details on the event.

Fire officials in Orlando, Florida say there was some fireworks that malfunctioned at a Wrestlemania event causing minor burns to about forty people. They say at least 3 people were needing to go to a hospital for treatment, but none of the injuries were serious. This occured last night at the Florida Citrus Bowl. A fire department spokesman said one of the cables holding the fireworks collapsed, sending hot embers from the fireworks into the crowd. He said there were burn injuries “up and down the stadium.”

TMZ.com actually managed to secure footage of the fireworks malfunction from WrestleMania. BUt it seems Luck was on the crowd’s side that the injuries were minor – this could have been a catastrophy for WWE. Watch the video here – scary stuff.
