HALES CORNERS, WI (WTAQ) - We’re learning more Friday about a July 4th fireworks show that went awry in a southwest Milwaukee suburb.

Hales Corners Police now say that a firework exploded in its launch tube on the ground.

The worker who set it off broke his left leg. He also had other injuries to the left side of his face and body.

It happened around 9:30 p.m. Thursday after only four bursts of fireworks were shot into the air.

The rest of the show was canceled.

Hales Corners Police destroyed the remaining fireworks that were going to be displayed.
