If I translated it correctly; there were two hospitalized with 2nd and 3rd degree burns. Mortality may come at some time later, from severe burns.
Apparently the boat was fueled by a "Captain" while the owner and guests were at lunch. The boat exploded when the owner attempted to start the boat. A sailboat, with Carbon fiber mast was also damaged in the explosion the fire also spread to the fuel pump.
We have spent several months at the Acapulco Yacht club thru the years. It is one of the most secure places in Acapulco. I suspect that those injured are getting the best medical care available in Acapulco.
Looking at one of the videos, frame by frame, you can see the initial flame/explosion at the ignition switch as the person attempts to start the engine. One wonders if the sniff test was done before starting?
