Woman's foot severed in Chicago fireworks blast

CHICAGO – Chicago police say a woman's foot was severed while she watched fireworks on the city's southwest side.

Authorities said the 32-year-old lost her left foot around 11 p.m. Thursday. Her right foot was also injured. Meanwhile, a 34-year-old woman who was nearby received fourth-degree burns to her left leg.

Police spokesman Michael Sullivan said the women were hurt after they saw a "light" come toward them and explode as they watched fireworks in a park.

The two were in serious condition Friday at a hospital.
