2dead, 100s injured in Philippines
At least two people were killed and nearly 600 others were injured by fireworks and gunfire in New Year celebrations in the Philippines, officials said Wednesday.
About 50 hospital nationwide reported 599 injured from Dec. 21 to Jan 1, at 43 percent jump from the same period last year, said Department of Health spokesman Dr. Eric Tayag.
In northern Cagayan province, a fireworks fountain display packed with firecrackers exploded and killed 19year old man, while an infant boy was killed by a bullet that went through the roof of the family’s house in northern Ilocos Sur province.
Doctors in nearby Ilocos Norte province said another boy is fighting for his llife after he was hit in the forehead by a bullet that is still lodged in his head.
The deaths and injuries come at the end of a year where several disasters hit the Philippines, including the Nov. 8 super Typhoon Haiyan, locally called Yolanda, that left more than 6,100 dead and nearly 1,800 others missing.
