At least 13 injured after 'explosion' on board ferry at Mexico resort
Feb 25 2018
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.
This photo, tweeted by a journalist, shows the damage sustained inside the vessel.
The Port Administration of Quintana Roo state said in a statement that preliminary indications suggest a mechanical failure may have been to blame.
The blast has left one side of the ferry, which belongs to the Barcos Caribe company, completely destroyed. In 2017, the Mexican government declared him a criminal due to corruption cases during his tenure, leading to his arrest at an airport in Panama last summer.
