Teenager loses fingers from ‘piece of trash’ that was a homemade explosive
HARTFORD Conn -- Tanisha Gabriele says her 16-year-old son thought he was picking up a piece of trash in his friend’s backyard, not an explosive, according to WTIC. "It’s scary but he’s strong, and he’s gonna make it through it, no matter what, he’s a tough kid and he’s keeping me strong," said Tanisha Gabriele, the mother of the teenager who picked up the explosive.
