Man Dies After Shooting Firework From Top of His Head

This year’s Independence Day may have been a great time for many, but it wasn’t all fun and games. In the city of Calais in Maine, a young man died while attempting to launch a firework off his head.

The moment the firework went off and fatally injured 22-year-old Devon Staples was witnessed by his brother, Cody, and his friends, who now say the entire affair can only be described as a freak accident.
