San Diego Accidentally Sets Off All of Its Fireworks at Once
Fifteen seconds. That's how long San Diego's fireworks show lasted this year. Thanks to a technical malfunction, the city's pyrotechnics went off at the same time, creating a very dramatic show. Confused spectators waited for more (and the music played on), but there was little more. As an onlooker told CNN:
"It shook the whole building. I thought it was a bomb or someone was shooting everybody," said Teagan Hamblin, a Kansas resident who was visiting San Diego. "Car alarms, every kind of noise came on. It was really unexpected."
