2 hurt in separate firecracker, ‘boga’ mishaps in Isabela, Cagayan

TUGUEGARAO CITY, Philippines- A 58-year old man and a minor were injured in separate firecracker and improvised cannon incidents in Isabela and Cagayan over Christmas eve.

In a report from Bombo Radyo, Fred Medina suffered an injury in his middle finger after failing to release immediately a five-star firecracker which exploded in his hand.

Further, he was reportedly drunk during the incident.

Medina is a resident of Barangay Bella Luz, San Mateo, Isabela; and is reportedly the first victim of a firecracker-related case in the said town.

Meanwhile, a boy from Linao East, this city, was rushed to the hospital after sustaining a minor hand injury from a boga.

Bombo reported that the seven-year-old boy was playing the improvised cannon when he accidentally fired it. The blast injured his right hand.

The health department is reportedly aiming for a 50 percent reduction in the number of firework-related incidents this year. Northernforum.net
