Girl recovers after tragic firework accident

(KUSA) Hailey Sexson was celebrating the four of July with her family last year when a faulty firework exploded near her.

She received second and third-degree burns on her arm and neck and even had some shrapnel in her eye. Hailey was treated at the Children's Hospital Colorado Burn Center in Aurora for physical pain and more.
