Mr McLaren, who was originally from Corby, Northamptonshire, had been partying at the Miami A Go Go bar before stepping outside and trying to light a 50cm cardboard tube packed with fireworks. Onlookers said his initial attempts to light the fireworks failed, but he succeeded on a second attempt, causing smoke to pour out of the tube. The fireworks then exploded in his face, knocking him to the ground. Police and medics were called and performed chest compressions on Mr McLaren, but he was pronounced dead at the scene. Source
