    At least nine people have been injured in Myanmar at an annual festival when a balloon laden with fireworks exploded over a crowd of spectators, The Daily Telegraph reported on Saturday.

    In footage uploaded on Youtube, you can see how the fireworks do not fly into the sky, but fly instead towards the crowd. Shocked people start screaming.

    The balloon was carrying around 40 pounds of explosives, according to reports.
