CHICAGO (AP) - Chicago Police say a woman’s foot was severed while she
watched fireworks on the city’s southwest side.
Authorities say a 32-year-old woman lost her left foot around 11 p.m. on
Thursday. Her right foot was also injured. Meanwhile, a 34-year-old woman
who was nearby also received fourth-degree burns to her left leg.
Police spokesman Michael Sullivan says the women were hurt after they saw a
“light” come toward them and explode as they watched fireworks in a park.
The two are in serious condition at a hospital.
