This is my original, unedited video footage of the 2009 premature detonation of fireworks in Tofte, MN. The video was shot from the northern (Bluefin Bay Resort) side of the shoreline of Lake Superior. It has been reported that one of the launch tubes had ruptured. (This video is longer because it includes extra footage after the explosion) The explosion was frightening to both adults and children watching the show ...After all the explosions stopped, (43 seconds in the video) there was a creepy and very disturbing silence in the crowd of spectators...Still in shock and disbelief the crowd gazed intently at the eerie crimson glow that flickered at ground zero...myself and others around me thought the worst had happened. Miraculously no one was injured during this incident!
