Woman involved in Playa del Carmen gas explosion dies

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — The woman involved in the recent gas explosion inside a house in west Playa del Carmen has reportedly died from her injuries. The 30-year-old female, Sinai L.L. who was originally from Mexico City, died in hospital.

She arrived with burns to nearly 90 percent of her body after a gas tank exploded inside a Playa del Carmen home last week.

The explosion happened when she and a man were allegedly refilling gas tanks in a clandestine refill station in the Ejido neighborhood. Neighbors reported the 7:45 a.m. explosion to emergency services.

The man involved in the explosion remains in serious condition.
