Man Threw M-80 Fireworks On A Homeless Sleeping Man In Harlem

A homeless man from New York City is in the hospital recovering from 3rd degree burns, after getting blown up by illegal fireworks while he slept. The clip which was shared online by MTO shows NYC’s illegal fireworks problem taking a dangerous and cruel twist.

In the video, a man is seen throwing a lit firework onto a sleeping homeless man at around 4 a.m. in Harlem. The firework appears to be an M-80 firecracker.

M-80s are an American class of large powerful firecrackers, sometimes called salutes. M-80s were originally made in the mid 20th century for the U.S. military to simulate explosives or artillery fire, and were later manufactured as fireworks.

The firework sizzled and then exploded on the man. Luckily the victim, 66, only suffered minor third degree burns, police said. Each M-80 holds approximately 3 grams of pyrotechnic flash powder, about as much as a quarter stick of dynamite.

The crime is particularly heinous, because it was perpetrated against a man as he peacefully slept.

The Police are reportedly looking for the suspect who threw the firework at a sleeping homeless man.
