The LAPD seized more than 5000 lbs of illegal fireworks from a south LA home and the bomb squad was planning to detonate some of them “safely at the location.”
They placed the unstable fireworks unsuitable for transport on a truck and well… things didn’t really go as planned.
Press play to watch the video below.
We are in the middle of a heatwave all over the country and they detonate at the scene? What were these guys thinking???
And true to form, they deny they did it on purpose:
Our Bomb Squad officers were in the process of seizing over 5,000 pounds of illegal fireworks in the area of 27th Street and San Pedro. Some of the fireworks were being stored in our Bomb Squad trailer as a precautionary measure. Unknown at this time what caused an explosion.
