A local child was transported to the hospital yesterday evening after being injured by fireworks, TLS has learned.

In response, Hatzolah of Central Jersey is warning parents to keep children away from fireworks, and supervise any such activity.

“These items can cause serious permanent damage and are a Sakanas Nefashos,” Hatzolah said. “Some innocent-looking fireworks have potential of leaving children with serious bodily injury.”

This evening’s injury is unfortunately not a first.
