SUNRISE BEACH, Mo. (AP) — Authorities say six people from Nebraska were injured when a boat exploded at a Missouri lake.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the explosion occurred Tuesday afternoon near Sunrise Beach at the Lake of the Ozarks.
The patrol says the boat was secured at a dock when a mechanical problem caused a fuel-related fire. James and Kari Hohenstein, Brad Vanwinkle, and two children aged 12 and 16 were seriously injured.
A 2-year-old suffered minor injuries.
The 16-year-old and Vanwinkle were flown to a Columbia hospital, while three others were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.
The people on the boat are from Gretna and Elkhorn.
