Fireworks in Tultepec – level 3
The city of Tultepec in the State of Mexico is a place where people literally live and die for fireworks. In the first half of 2018 and in one state alone, 40 people died in 16 accidents involving pyrotechnics.
The city is so infamous for deadly explosions that injuries no longer surprise people. The locals, however, are very proud of their craft, and it is one that they say they will never give up. Making fireworks is the main source of income for many in the city.
One pyrotechnics artisan said that it is a type of art to know how to mix the products. Another one said that people do not steal, and theirs is an honest, noble profession. He wishes not to be seen as a person that causes accidents, adding the pyrotechnics are light, party, colour and fun.
