At least 13 injured after 'explosion' on board ferry at Mexico resort

Ferry explosion

At least 25 people were injured in a ferry explosion in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. "But after that we were able to help out a few others that had more serious injuries", Rebecca Lahlum said.

"The priority is people". Some of the injuries also included minor cuts and those affected in the incident were taken to a hospital for treatment.

The ferry was en route to Conzumel from Playa del Carmen early Wednesday.

Footage from the explosion posted online showed the blast sending a fireball and debris flying sideways from the ferry, which was then being moored to the dock with several people nearby. Soon after the explosion, ambulances made their way into the pier. The cause of the explosion is under investigation.
