Two cops were maimed in a fireworks mishap at Citi Field in Queens early Monday, police sources said Monday.
The injured officers appear to have brought the fireworks to work, sources said.
The 3:30 a.m. incident occurred in the stadium’s parking lot, where officers from the 110th Precinct were assigned to a mobile command center.
Officer Isaac Garcia, a six-year veteran, was rushed to Elmhurst Hospital with severe eye and hand injuries, sources said.
Officer Eric Dipple, a 17-year veteran, suffered face and hand injuries and was taken to Bellevue Hospital.
Two other cops were treated at NewYork-Presbyterian Queens Hospital for ringing in the ears.
