A glitch caused the entire San Diego Fourth of July fireworks display to launch at all at once! Garden State Fireworks, who put on the San Diego show, released an apology statement disclosing that the whole show launched in 15 seconds!
“It shook the whole building. I thought it was a bomb or someone was shooting everybody,” said one spectator visiting San Diego from Kansas. “Car alarms, every kind of noise came on. It was really unexpected.” The crowd at the San Diego bay went quiet, confused as the sky went dark while “Proud to be An American,” and “Born in the USA,” blared on.
