Man Dies After Shooting Fireworks From Top of Head VIDEO Maine Fireworks Accident Death

Man Dies After Shooting Fireworks From Top of Head MAine Fireworks Accident Death Man Dies After Attempting to Shoot Fireworks From Top of Head CALAIS, Maine (AP) — A young man who was drinking and celebrating the Fourth of July tried to launch a firework off the top of his head, fatally injuring himself, authorities said Sunday.

Devon Staples and his friends had been drinking and setting off fireworks Saturday night in the backyard of a friend’s home in the small eastern Maine city of Calais, said Stephen McCausland, a spokesman for the state Department of Public Safety. Staples, 22, of Calais, placed a fireworks mortar tube on his head and set it off, he said.

The firework exploded, killing Staples instantly, McCausland said.

His death is the first fireworks fatality in Maine since the state legalized fireworks on Jan. 1, 2012, authorities said.

Calais is on the Canadian border near New Brunswick.

State fire marshals were also investigating several other Fourth of July fireworks accidents involving injuries in Friendship, Jefferson, Lebanon and Woodstock. They said most of the accidents involved burns and eye injuries. McCausland said further details were expected to be released later Sunday.

In 2011, lawmakers voted to repeal a 1949 law banning fireworks, reasoning the industry would create jobs and generate additional revenue.

L Y R I C S – English Girls
The girls are crying
On the corner
Because the boys all left
And they’ve had too much to drink
We’re in London
Mid October
He’s convinced the blonde by the bar just gave him a wink
And the words he spoke left me in disbelief

He said
“Smoke whatever you’ve got left,
It’s getting late and we don’t have much to lose”
Well she said,
“English girls they just like sex”
I couldn’t believe when he said “I’ve got news for you,”
“American boys do too.”

Her face went red as
The words left his tongue and
She rolls up a cigarette and he strikes a paper match
I can tell he’s pouring honey
Into her ear as
Us teenage kids were getting pissed on cider and black

He pins her against the wall
Tells her she’s beautiful
She says she’s going home
That’s when he said…
