The fireworks exploded with golden sparks and flames, but the spectacle occurred not above the crowd, but on the ground, in the middle of it.

Feng Jianan, 26, witnessed the accident at the annual Hangzhou firework show.

"I was sitting on the second row in front of the river, and the fireball dropped from the sky to our left and landed somewhere behind us," Feng said on Sunday.
