3 Children, 1 Adult Injured in Miami, FL, Boat Explosion Accident

Miami, FL -- May 21, 2017, three children and an adult were injured following an accident where an explosion occurred on their boat.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue personnel were called out to the scene of the accident at around 8:45 a.m. The incident happened at Black Point Park and Marina, which is located along the coast just off of SW 87th Avenue.

According to rescue officials, the small boat was in the channel of the marina at the time, about a quarter mile outside the docks. It's unclear exactly how this happened, but vapors somehow built up around the boat and ignited. This caused a small explosion, injuring those on-board.

The three children, all under 10 years old, and the adult on the boat sustained non-life-threatening injuries and were taken to a local hospital.

The exact cause of the accident is still under investigation.
