    Looks like an accidental slip and fall fatality.
    I lost my dad the same way.
    Sad.

    That is just wild. Sorry about your loss SteveNash. Probably a way we never think about going but it certainly happens.

    Thanks.
    My dad was upstairs in his home.
    Heard the phone ring, slipped at the top of the stairs as he headed down, tumbled straight down an entire flight.
    Smacked his head.

    The mortar hit him in the chest. You have to tie those boxes down so they dont tip over and do this.... Could have been prevented. Rip though

    Sorry to hear that we lost our Aunt Rita a few months back she went down to the basement to check on the heater and should not have. As she got to the top she lost her balance and fell backwards all the way down. She hit her head bad too. She was airlifted but did not make it. Because of covid we could not even get to the funeral. We plan on going soon though to visit her grave and say goodbuy ourselves . She was one of my favorites on my wifes side.

    Most likely the "cake" a box of 12 mortar rockets ( the big ones thst go really high) tipped over upon ignition. If the box isnt tied down when it goes off the propulsion from ignition tips it over and shoots them at you

    I bet this guy could rig a car bomb. JJ, what are the handicap plate #ís of vittHERís Ford Windstar? We know it smells like dog shit and has handicap stickers and a handicap sign dangling from the windshield. Guy so fat heís on disability so we know he has handicap plates we just need the numbers so we can take out the trash.

    I bet the velocity of a mortar is similar to a one timer. Dude could've got a hand up to block it a bit.

    He didn't slip and fall. He got hit by a mortar blast. I wonder what kind of fireworks did they have? That is crazy and so sad.


    Columbus Blue Jackets goalie Matiss Kivlenieks, 24, dies after being struck by fireworks

    8:01 AM CT
    • ESPN News Services




    A medical examiner in Michigan says an autopsy has determined that Columbus Blue Jackets goaltender Matiss Kivlenieks died of chest trauma from an errant fireworks mortar blast, and not a fall, as authorities previously reported.
