Wedding fireworks rupture eardrums

A wedding in Switzerland went off with a bang, rupturing this guest’s eardrums.

The 30-year-old man presented to an ED with binaural hearing loss and tinnitus after celebratory fireworks accidentally ignited a sand-filled mortar next to him.

The resulting blast injury caused multiple perforations of both tympanic membranes, an otoscopy revealed.
