A rather terrifying video of a 4th of July fireworks show going terribly wrong in Simi Valley, in southern California (just north of Los Angeles).

28 people were injured with burns and shrapnel, only 8 could be treated at the scene, a full 20 got sent to the hospital, according to the local NBC affiliate. (H/t to reader PerlJammer for pointing me to the video.)
Some of the clips from the video of the fireworks mishap – the video is posted below – are oddly beautiful:
Here’s the video, it’s pretty wild:
