A man blew off his arm while lighting fireworks at a party on Long Island yesterday, police said. Eric Smith’s friends and relatives retrieved his severed left arm and packed it into a cooler after the blast, Suffolk County police said. Doctors at a hospital are trying to reattach the limb, they said. Cops believe Smith, 36, leaned over a mortar tube containing fireworks to ignite it outside a Islip Terrace home at around 5:45 p.m. He apparently couldn’t get out of the way before the explosive went off. Another person at the party also was taken to a hospital, police said, but it was unclear why last night.
