Firework Accident Victim Airlifted to Texas

A young burn victim in Pascagoula was transported to a burn center in Texas Sunday night.

A Joppa Shriner of Biloxi said the Shriners have been given permission to fly the patient to their Galveston facility.

The patient was one of two victims air lifted to Mobile last night after a dangerous fireworks accident in Pascagoula.

Another boy was treated and released from Singing River Hospital last night.

Police say the boys, ages 9, 10 and 11, found a firework left behind from a city fireworks display.

They say the children were unsupervised when they lit the explosive.
