    Teenager seriously injured when someone put a lit firecracker in his pants

    TAMPA - A teenager was seriously injured Sunday after someone put a lit firecracker in a pocket of his pants.

    Derrick Underwood, 16, of Tampa, was visiting his sister in the 1200 block of India Street, where 20 to 30 people were throwing fireworks at one another about 9 p.m., Tampa Fire Rescue officials said.

    Underwood ran for nearly a block with his pants on fire before removing them, fire officials said.

    Paramedics took him to Tampa General Hospital. He suffered second- and third-degree burns on his buttocks and left thigh, about 10 percent of his body, officials said.

    Good thing he wasn't sagging, he'd be missing a knee right now.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.

    I'd like to know where that fire cracker was bought, because regular Black Cats would not do that. They won't even put a mark on a little plastic soldier...

    Knowing my luck, i was expecting to run across something like this last night. Sgt would of course drive by just in time to see me go running down the road with a fire extinguisher in hand, chasing a guy with his pants on fire.
