Meteorologist Hurt in Fireworks Accident

SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (AP) -- A meteorologist at a Detroit-area television station has been injured in a fireworks accident in Iowa.
   WXYZ-TV its chief meteorologist, Dave Rexroth, on Wednesday is to undergo surgery that will begin the process of implanting a prosthetic eye.
   According to the station, Rexroth lost sight in his left eye during a fireworks mishap Friday night that occurred while he was vacationing with his family in Iowa City. In response to a request for information on the incident, an Iowa City police spokesman said he doesn't have a report that lists Rexroth's name.
   WXYZ says Rexroth is expected to recover by September.
   General manager Ed Fernandez says Rexroth and his family have the station's "full support during this difficult time," and he looks forward to Rexroth's return.
