MORGAN COUNTY, MO (KCTV) – Five people were injured when there was a boat explosion at the Lake of the Ozarks.

According to MSHP records, the incident happened at 2:18 p.m. on Saturday at the Millstone Marina’s gas dock.

The 1993 Chris Craft had just been filled with fuel when the driver started its engine. Then, there was an explosion due to a lack of ventilation and a mechanical failure.

One person was ejected, went into the water, and had to be rescued.

Four people sustained moderate injuries and were taken to the hospital. That includes a 6-year-old girl, a 71-year-old man who was the driver, a 48-year-old woman, and a 39-year-old man.

On passenger, a 42-year-old man, sustained serious injuries and was flown to a hospital.

All five of them are from Kansas City, Missouri.
