    Was anyone hurt in the NYE fireworks accident in DCA?

    We were watching the various fireworks shows and the World or Color fountains from our room at the Paradise Pier. About halfway throught the NYE show, two fireworks didnt get much altitude and landed either in the new restaurant area west of Paradise Bay or in the walkway near Silly Symphony Swings. A few minutes later paramedics showed up.

    Just wondering if anyone got hurt.

    If the paramedics showed up, it was probably for a reason. Hopefully it wasn't too serious.

    I wasn't there, nor do I know anything of the potential incident, there does appear to be some firework going into the said area (silly symphony swings area) in this video from last night. if you watch at the 4:04 mark on the video, a firework lands in the very right side of the screen/video near the Swings and the restaurant. This could be totally off, but it looks like it lands on the ground.

    I was top and center for the NYE show...had a BLAST by the way...but there were at least three fireworks that went haywire into the crowds...one went off into the walkway by the swings, one landed on the walkway over by the Turkey Leg cart, and another on the roof in that same area that actually continued to burn for a few seconds after landing. Could see the people on the docks...which wen not a lot...and didn't see any serious commotion which led me to believe that there was no harm.

    Do they not close off any areas around the lagoon when they fire pyrotechnics for special occasions like NYE and Independence Day?

    I was there as well and saw the two fireworks that headed to Paradise grill anyone by the screaming boardwalk.

    The show continued without stopping, the problem was a few pyros that were aimed to shoot across the waters from one point to the other They over shot.

    after the countdown instead of going directly into the first 2013 WOC they turned the lights on and did not announce anything. Some people started leaving but just a couple minutes later all lights dimmed and show continued. Did not seem like they hit any crowds. The Paradise bay grill was mostly empty with everyone at waters edge watching show. Could not really see how far the one into screaming went but it might have hit water from what someone next to me said

    Sounds like a close call if anything! Hope everyone was ok!

    I LOVE seeing what Disney can do with the capabilities of the World of Color equipment! They really need to change it more often than they do. Excellent show.
    It's actually "Cars Land", not "Carsland".
