A teen trying to earn money over the summer to pay for his cell phone and car insurance is recovering after he was attacked with fireworks on his first day on the job.
Sixteen-year-old Jacob Robinson's family says someone threw lighted fireworks through his car window Friday night when he stopped to ask for directions as he delivered food in Myrtle Beach.
Authorities say the fireworks burned Robinson on 15 percent of his body.
His shirt was still smoldering when paramedics arrived.
