Cumming Firework Show Worker Recovering from Injuries

Cumming Firework Show Worker Recovering from Injuries Sustained on the Fourth

Source: accessnorthga.com

A man who was injured on the job earlier this month at Cumming’s annual Fourth of July fireworks show has steadily been on the mend. Rick Crumley has been working at the Cumming fireworks show for the past 15 years and this is the first time that he has ever had an issue with lighting the explosives.

Crumley stated, “As I lit it, it inadvertently got too high…so when that shell went off, it struck the back of my hand, opened it up and broke bones, then hit me in the face and broke my nose.” Luckily, doctors were able to save all of his fingers but he’ll have to undergo extensive physical therapy. With the urging of those who care about him, Crumley’s firework shooting days have come to and end. He later said “I’ve got too many people saying I’m done. I’m basically not going to shoot any more.”

Remember, no matter how long you’ve been performing tasks at your place of work, there is always room for error. Though you may think you have everything under control, often times there are may more things that can be completely unpredictable. Be careful out there, and make sure you’re prepared for every situation. We hope that Mr. Crumley’s physical therapy goes well, and that he makes a complete recovery.
