Terrifying footage shows the chaos after rockets from a fireworks display landed in the crowd watching on.

Four people celebrating Australia Day were injured in the accident and taken to hospital with burns from the projectiles, but all have now been discharged.

The video, taken by an onlooker, shows the crowd-pleasing display moments before the horrifying moment when one set of rockets malfunctioned and rather than exploding harmlessly in the sky dived towards the ground.

Suddenly, bright flashes of red light and smoke plunge towards the person holding the camera. The crowd screams and scrambles for cover as the burning fireworks crash nearby. "Oh my God, oh my God," one woman shouts in fear.
