COMPTON, Calif. (AP) - Investigators say they’re trying to figure out how a 9-year-old girl got the fireworks that exploded and led to the loss of her right hand.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement Monday that many children were playing in the city park in Compton and many were seen fleeing after the explosion on Saturday that also left the girl with blast injuries to her face.

The department said it’s seeking information from the public on how the accident happened.
