For the second time in as many days, there was a Fourth of July celebration at the Pasco County Fairgrounds in Dade City.
An accident cut the original show short Wednesday the 4th.
"After a few fireworks went off, there was one that was really low and I knew something was wrong," said eyewitness Crystal Wallace.
According to the Pasco County Fair Association, the man responsible for directing the show was injured by a defective firework.
"This one exploded at about three or four feet above his head and that blast came down on top of him," said Wilton Simpson of Pasco County Fair Association.
He has been treated at the hospital and is expected to be okay.
It wasn't the only fireworks mishap on the Fourth. In San Diego, an electrical glitch caused a display to go off early Wednesday—and making matters worse, they all went off at once.
And back in 2007, 12 people were injured in St. Pete Beach when a mortar accidentally discharged.
That explosion even shattered nearby windows.
Luckily only the operator was injured in Dade City Wednesday.
And since the mishap happened so early in the show, organizers decided to give it another try one day later.
"We decided that it would only be fair since the fireworks are here, they're paid for to go ahead and have the event," said Simpson.
Melody Floyd of Dade City was busy on the Fourth so the rescheduled show was right up her alley.
"Normally we do come out, we've been coming here since my son was little," said Floyd.
Crystal Wallace brought her family out on the Fourth and decided to come back to see the entire show one day later, for her kids sake.
"The few he saw he loved them and has been saying boom, boom and pointing to the sky all day," said Wallace.
That said it wasn't a very easy decision for her.
"I debated for a while because I do feel bad that somebody was hurt for the expense of other peoples entertainment," Wallace said.
