Man injures hands during New Year's Eve revelry

A man injured by firecrackers is cared for at the Jose Reyes Memorial Medical Center in Manila early on Tuesday, after New Year's celebrations. The Philippines’ New Year celebrations draw on ancient superstitions and Chinese traditions in which the noise from firecrackers is meant to drive away evil spirits and bring good luck in the coming year.
