NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — An area of Central Park was closed following an explosion that injured one person. Police sources told CBS2 they are investigating whether fireworks played a part in the explosion.

A man is lucky to be alive after jumping off a rock in Central Park and landing on an explosive device, which exploded. His foot was blown off, and people heard the explosion several hundred yards away.

July 4th is a holiday to celebrate, but be careful with fireworks, pyrotechnics, and other explosives. They can turn a day for celebration into a deadly one.

I heard this on the radio. A mortar, for God's sake? What? Wow.

I've already heard of a man losing most of his hand.

Happy Birthday America. And for a present you'll get either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton.

My contract runs into federal status after title 10 orders this year. I have a 5 year option to be stationed in Germany with the studies division. Should get me outta here to avoid the Hillary disaster. Think I should accept it?

Mortars are common firework for states where can still buy them. The name sounds bad...but they can be pretty simple. Essentially a two explosion device. One to launch the 2nd explosive and the 2nd explosive to blow up so we all say ooo and aaah.

I think most fireworks that you see around the country are mortar type fireworks.

I'd be on base. Wouldn't be any different than being on any other base. Can't be any worse than Benning. There's no ladies there compared to any other base.

Surely you leave the base once and a while.

I doubt I'll experience this crazy socialism experience getting drunk in a pub. Truthfully, I'll forget I'm even in Germany.

You certainly wont, because it's not a "crazy experience."

I'm starting to think there's an agenda behind your posts. I'm just glad I will be on base in a beautiful country and won't have to see Hillary's destruction

You will be in the center of Europe. Lots to see and do.
Get off the base and see what a different world it is. German language is not difficult to learn, enough to get around in. Take some language courses.

I'm still waiting on the destruction Obama was supposed to bring us. Been almost eight years now, hearing doom and gloom every single day from the right.

Be careful. My brother was court martialed for getting drunk when he was stationed in Germany. He beat the charges. Funny thing is, the officer who brought him up on charges was himself court martialed for the same thing less than a year later. He also beat the charges. LOL.

Good news, I won't be falling under UCMJ. I'll be a government employee as opposed to uniformed personnel. :)
