Utah, Bollywood Fever: A fireworks malfunction at the Stadium of Fire event in Utah resulted in one person being struck in the face and multiple others injured during a July 4th celebration at Brigham Young University.

Videos posted on social media captured the chaotic scene as fireworks were accidentally launched into the crowd during an F-35 fighter jet flyover amid a flag ceremony. Several pyrotechnics misfired, with at least two shooting into the field where performers were stationed and two others landing among the east stand spectators. The event had drawn a crowd of approximately 50,000 people.

The celebrations were halted for 20 minutes while the injured received medical attention, with some rushed to local hospitals. Additional aircraft flyovers were scheduled but were delayed due to the incident.
