Cartridge explodes in man’s hand 

A man was left in a critical condition after the explosion of a dynamite cartridge on La Palma.

The incident happened on the coast of the Juan Adalid area in Garafía.

The 48-year-old man suffered severe trauma in one of his arms and was transferred in a critical condition by a medical ambulance from the SUC to the General Hospital of La Palma.

A 112 spokesman said the man had been handling the cartridge when it went off but the circumstances were not clarified.

The medical helicopter of the SUC flew to the site but it was not possible to land in the area due to the weather conditions.

The Civil Guard is in charge of the investigation.
