A Petard gets inside a baby carriage with a 7-month-old baby girl

Three people including two children were injured as a result of a pyrotechnics explosion last night in Moscow. This has been reported to "Interfax" by Moscow's emergency services.

A four-year-old boy in the South-West district of Moscow received severe burns as a result of being in a close proximity with pyrotechnics. He was delivered to the ophthalmology department of the Morozov clinic in Moscow. One of the petards flew right into a 7-month-old girl’s baby carriage. As a result, the newborn was delivered to a nearby 71 hospital with burns on her forehead. 

In the Southern district, a 43-year-old man received severe eye burns. He was hospitalized as well. According to medical workers, his condition can be described as satisfactory.

Total amount of people injured from petards and fireworks in Moscow is seven.
