Man Blows His Head Off Playing With Fireworks!

Man blew his head off in fireworks incident.

Damn shame.

But goddamn it, he shouldn't never of have done it. You can't fix stupid! 

You can't replace a life. You only have one life and that's it. Devon Staples a young man from a Maine city just a few miles from the Canadian border wanted to show off. He wanted to do a trick that he saw on the social media. It cost him his life.

World News Today send our condolences to Devon Staples and every victim of firework tragedies.

So many people fail to realize that these are dangerous explosives. I mean if you're not using it right, you lose an appendage or your life.

He was a great entertainer.
Staples blew his head off after he got drunk and decided to put a firework projectile on his head.

Matter of fact, there were over 400 cases of incidents where people messing with fireworks were injured or killed this year alone.

Staples did some part time work acting at Disney World as a character actor. The AP reached out to his family. They said that this event was an accident.

Staples, 22, of Calais, a small city on the Canadian border, placed a reloadable fireworks mortar tube on his head and told his friends he was going to light it, McCausland said. But his friends urged him to stop.

"Apparently, he thought that was a great idea," McCausland said. "His friends they thought dissuaded him from doing it, and the next thing they knew, he ignited the fireworks and he was killed instantly."

Staples's brother Cody told the Daily News of New York that he was a few feet away when his brother lit the firework and was the first to come to his side after it exploded.

"There was no rushing him to the hospital. There was no Devon left when I got there," said 25-year-old Cody Staples, who called it an accident.

"Devon was not the kind of person who would do something stupid. He was the kind of person who would pretend to do something stupid to make people laugh," he said.

Staples' death is the first fireworks fatality in Maine since the state legalized fireworks on Jan. 1, 2012, authorities said.

Lawmakers had voted to repeal a 1949 law banning fireworks, reasoning the industry would create jobs and generate revenue.

State fire marshals were also investigating several other Fourth of July fireworks accidents involving injuries in Friendship, Jefferson, Lebanon and Woodstock. They said most of the accidents involved burns and eye injuries.

In Montana on Saturday, a 32-year-old man was killed at a Billings home in a fireworks accident involving a mortar tube.

And in New Jersey, a 52-year-old man blew off a large piece of his left leg below the knee when he set off a tennis-ball sized firework in Leonia.
