This is the shocking moment new year celebrations turned nasty when a firework exploded in a man’s hands.

The footage, filmed in Omsk, Russia on January 1 2020, shows the unlucky victim preparing to launch the rocket when, all of a sudden, it goes off early.

The haunting video then shows the man being thrown into the air.

According to witnesses, the reveller somehow escaped serious injury and was later able to get up and leave the area on his own.
