Video: The Biggest, Most Dangerous Fireworks Show In The World

There isn't a larger firework show in the world than the one in Manila.

Of all the New Year's Eve firework shows around the world, the one in Manila is unique.

The video above, taken a couple hours ago, looks over Manila as the Philippines celebrates the new year.

If it looks completely disorganized, it is. Nearly the entire city of 1.7 million people get their own fireworks and let them fly when the new year arrives.

As impressive as it is, it's also dangerous. Last year, 400 people were injured and two children died from stray bullets. This year, about 260 people were injured from explosives even before New Year's Eve arrived, according to CBC news.
