NY man blows off arm with party fireworks

ISLIP TERRACE, N.Y. (AP) - Police say a man lighting fireworks has blown off his arm at a party on New York's Long Island.

Suffolk County police say the 36-year-old man's friends and relatives retrieved his severed left arm and packed it into a cooler after the blast Saturday. Police say doctors at a hospital are trying to reattach the limb.

 Police believe the man leaned over a mortar to ignite it outside a home in Islip Terrace, N.Y. He apparently didn't or couldn't get out of the way before the explosive went off. Police say another person at the party also was taken to a hospital, but it's unclear why.
