In Montana on Saturday, a year-old man was killed in a fireworks accident involving a mortar tube. Investigators disclosed that forensic tests will determine if the bullet went through the vest or struck an uncovered area of the victims. The former Disney actor put a reloadable fireworks tube on his head and told his friends he was going to light it — but his friends panicked and urged him to stop.
A man has been shot and killed after he got it into his head to wear a bulletproof vest at a party and try to take a gunshot with it. Officials were also investigating several other Fourth of July fireworks accidents, mostly involving burns and eye injuries.
