Fort Walton Beach Helps Boy Burned by Fireworks

Fort Walton Beach residents are raising money to help a 14-year-old boy severely injured in a Fourth of July fireworks accident.

Andrew Austin Woods was burned over half his body and is undergoing treatment at a medical center in Alabama. His family has no health insurance.

The boy was playing with sparklers and lighter fluid when his clothes caught fire.
