Fireworks Disaster Kills San Diego 4th of July

4y ago


15 minutes of fireworks explode in 15 seconds: was the Big Bay Boom a huge bust or an epic win? A full independence day fireworks show was condensed into 15 exhilarating seconds when a rare system glitch set off all the fireworks from three barges simultaneously here in the San Diego Bay--an embarrassing performance from the show's operator: Garden State Fireworks, a world renowned pyrotechnics company. No injuries were reported from the surprise explosions that went off five minutes early. By 9:20 p.m., hundreds thousands of people waiting for the full fireworks display were told to go home. For those of us that witnessed the event live, it's definitely something we'll never forget, but what do you think: would you rather have witnessed a crazy, once in a lifetime event like this in your city, or the normal, significantly longer show?
