THE Guardia Civil has reported the tragic death of a five-year-old child from Alcala la Real on August 7 when he was hit in the face by a firework at around 7pm in the town of Montillana (Granada province) whilst attending the Virgen del Rosario (‘Virgin of the Rosary’) fiesta.

It appears that a male adult let off a rocket that was misdirected shooting into the crowd where it smashed into the face of the child who was rushed to Granada’s Parque Tecnologico de Salud hospital where he subsequently died.

A man has been arrested on suspicion of being responsible for the child’s death.
