Flomaton Welcomes Home Teen Fireworks Accident Victim

July 12, 2017

Residents of Flomaton came together Tuesday night to welcome home a fellow resident, firefighter, classmate and friend that endured a tragic accident on the Fourth of July.

Hunter White, who turns 17 on Thursday, suffered major injuries to his right hand during an explosion as fireworks were being lit. He was taken to the hospital in Brewton and then airlifted to the regional burn center at the University of South Alabama Medical Center in Mobile. He was released from the hospital Tuesday.

White received a big welcome home back in Flomaton, with last-mile ride to house in a Flomaton fire truck with a police escort. White is a junior member of the Flomaton Fire Department.

The Flomaton High senior received a warm welcome at home from about 100 people.
