Florida man blows off his hand after holding a lit firework while riding pickup

A 27-year-old Florida man partially severed his hand after he lit a firework inside a truck. Corey Waugh reportedly took the rocket motor off the firework and then lit the fuse on the aerial cluster burst while holding it in his left hand. The lighter torch was blown to pieces. The back and driver’s side windows were blown out and the windshield was shattered from the pressure of the explosion.

Holy shit, that's tragic. The guy didn't do this on purpose, the driver threw his finished cigarette out the window and it blew back into the truck and landed in a box of fireworks. Apparently the passenger saw it and grabbed the firework and threw it out of his window, but it blew up in his hand. Both of his eardrums are perforated, his eyes are damaged, his left hand is 80% gone, and he has 3rd degree burns all over his face. He is only 27, did something that needed to be done, and now he's facing an uncertain future. Family has a goFundMe page for him.

That seems rather sane for Florida Man, usually he tries to launch one out of his anus.

Hope that wasn't Florida man's dominant hand. He's going to have some awful nights if he's single
