10 injured at Yasothon rocket festival

By Asaree Thaitrakulpanich, Staff Reporter

 

 

YASOTHON — A rocket exploded Sunday at the annual Rocket Festival in the northeastern province of Yasothon, injuring 10.

 

A homemade rocket exploded just after ignition as it left the tower at about 2pm, burning 10 onlookers. The three-meter rocket exploded about 10 meters from the ground, raining down plastic shrapnel and burning gunpowder. The injured, including three members of the team which set up the rocket, were taken for treatment at Sai Mun Hospital for minor burns.

To be honest, I expect that to happen when they're changing the oil or inflating the tyres on a car nowadays.

? Seriously asking ?

A town/province in eastern Isan (northeast Thailand).

One of the poorest provinces of the country.

 

Or did I miss a joke here?

...poor attempt on my part to draw a parallel with the annual Yasothon Festival and the amount of rockets being let off lately in NK.  Sympathies go to the injured of course.
