Re: Ferry explosion injures 25 in Playa del Carmen, Mexico
I also had read that an oxygen may have exploded, but that's a whole lot of flames from an oxygen tank. Ever see a tank have a valve knocked off and shoot across the bay? It just sounds unlikely to me....
And then there is this:
US State Department release today:
Security Alert - U. S. Embassy Mexico City, Mexico (March 1, 2018)
Location: Playa del Carmen, Mexico
Event: On March 1, undetonated explosive devices were found by Mexican law enforcement on a tourist ferry that operates between Cozumel-Playa del Carmen, Mexico. On February 21, an explosive device detonated on a tourist ferry in Playa del Carmen resulting in injuries, including to U.S. citizens. U.S. Government employees are prohibited from using all tourist ferries on this route until further notice. Mexican and U.S. law enforcement continue to investigate.
Mexican authorities requested US assistance, so I suspect that this may be based upon what the US force found.
Is there anyone down there now that can share any local news of what is going on?
