Fireworks malfunction in Bolivian soccer stadium and go off into the stands

Bolivian fans of The Strongest football club were bidding farewell to their captain Pablo Escobar when planned fireworks misfired and shot off randomly onto the pitch and into the stands.

Footage of Escobar's farewell ceremony at Hernando Siles stadium in La Paz on December 19 shows fireworks misfiring from their marks, and sporadically launching in different directions, causing crowds of fans to scatter to avoid the low flying explosions.
