Woman Seriously Injured After Confusing M-80 for Candle

Some people are too stupid to breathe. :lol:

“She attempted to light one of what she thought was the candle and turned out to be a quarter stick of dynamite,” police said.

Authorities say the woman suffered severe injuries to her hand and face and could lose several fingers as a result of her injuries.

All family members were home at the time of the incident, but no other injuries had been reported. WABC reported that the force of the explosion was strong enough to blow out one of the windows inside the home.

Bridgeport Fire Department officials and Connecticut State Police searched the home for other explosives and removed another dynamite device. State police officers later disposed of the device.

Connecticut law prohibits the possession of fireworks or dynamite, but authorities say they are not filing charges against the family.

Then why have the law(s) on the books. 

How the hell does an M80 look like a Candle?

Back in my younger days we would go fishing with M80's for Saturday night dinner out on the farm.

Politics is supposed to be the second-oldest profession.  I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.  ~ Ronald Reagan ~

Same here, when the fish weren't biting, you bite first. :lol:
The only thing I can think of? When it lit, she was too damn drunk to recognize the sparkly wick was an actual fuse.
Seriously, they had to have a flashlight, and they obviously had a match with which they could have examined these before lighting, so I'm going with really freakin high. :biggrin:
