Iowa Fireworks Blind Detroit Meteorologist
IOWA CITY, IA (CBS2/FOX28) According to WXYZ TV a Detroit meteorologist is partially blind after an Iowa City fireworks accident.
The station says their chief meteorologist Dave Rexroth was vacationing in Iowa City for the fourth of July when the accident happened.
They say it left him blind in his left eye.
The Iowa City police spokesman says that they do not have a report that lists Rexroth's name from their city fireworks show so they're not sure how it happened.
The Detroit station says Rexroth is scheduled to have surgery Wednesday and will eventually get a prosthetic eye.
They say he is expected to recover by September.
