Hockey star Matiss Kivlenieks, 24, dead after being 'pursued by fireworks' projectiles during bizarre accident



A hockey goalkeeper, Matiss Kivlenieks who plays for Columbus Blue Jackets died on Sunday following a Fourth of July bizarre accident in Michigan, according to local police.


Lt. Jason Meier of the Novi Police Department said Kivlenieks was in a hot tub when a mortar-style firework tilted slightly and started to go off toward people nearby.






Kivlenieks and several others were 'pursued by the fireworks.'


As he and other people attempted to run away, the 24-year-old slipped and fell, and suffered a head injury.






"At the moment, we’re pretty certain this was a tragic accident," Meier said.Latest Post Follow us on Google newsTwitter and on Facebook
