Davenport boy lost his hand in fireworks accident


A 15-year-old boy lost his hand in a fireworks accident Friday night in Davenport. 

He was holding what he thought was a smoke bomb.

His family tells Local 4 News he was taken to a hospital in Peoria for a procedure at 2 a.m. but doctors could not save his hand.

How family now wants to make sure parents in the Quad Cities pay attention to what fireworks they are buying now that they’re legal in Iowa.

They don’t want something like this to happen to any other children.
