An estimated 67 percent Rose Loesch of these injuries occurred during loo thday the weeks before and after the _..vth bir Fourth of july (June 20 - July 20). Thirty-five percent of the injuries involved children under the age of 15. The most commonly injured body parts included: hands and fingers (36 percent); head, face and ears (19 percent); and eyes (19 percent).
