Posted on: 5:08 pm, July 5, 2013, by

Officials in eastern Iowa say a computer error caused a show to go off way too fast.

The amateur YouTube footage shows the entire Coralville fireworks display going off in just over a minute.

Fortunately no one was hurt.

Officials say the city spends $12,000 a year on the show but this kind of problem has never happened before.
