Man’s Arms Blow Off While Making Homemade Fireworks
( 4UMF NEWS ) Man's Arms Blow Off While Making Homemade Fireworks:
A Florida man who blew off both his arms when the crude fireworks he was assembling in his kitchen exploded will not face criminal charges.
Justin McHenry was using a coffee grinder to mix explosive materials at his Cape Coral condo May 1 when the mixture suddenly detonated, Wink News reported.
The 31-year-old's limbs were blown off from below the elbows after shrapnel shot out across the room. His bones were left exposed and he also suffered severe injuries to his abdomen and upper legs.
Cops arrived on the scene and found a dazed McHenry sitting outside. Smoke was coming out from his explosion-ravaged apartment. He was rushed to Lee Memorial Hospital for emergency treatment. His current condition is not known.
Three weeks later, investigators from the Cape Coral Police Department submitted an application for his arrest to the State Attorney's Office. They claimed they'd found goods "consistent with items that were used to build IEDs."
His computer history also allegedly showed that he'd been searching how to build powerful flash powder and fireworks.
Police wanted to charge McHenry with making, possessing or discharging a destructive device or attempting to do so. However, the application was denied last week.
"It didn't rise to criminal intent," state attorney spokeswoman Samantha Syoen told the News-Press. "He had a coffee grinder and when he pushed the coffee grinder down, it blew his arms off."
The police department said the case was closed.
"We understand and respect the state's decision not to pursue charges in this case," said Det. Sergeant Dana Coston.
