What started out as a nice boating trip for an extended family of 14 people who left from Apollo Beach, Florida on a 33 foot Sea Ray to anchor in three feet of water off Pine Key Island (also know as Beer Can Island) ended in an explosion in the rear portion of the boat.

Eleven people on board were injured, including the six who were seriously injured and flown by helicopter to Tampa General Hospital.  Five other children were treated for smoke inhalation and released from the hospital.  Three others were wading near the boat at the time of the explosion and were apparently not injured.

The cause of the explosion is under investigation.  The boat's twin engines were not operating at the time, although a gasoline generator was.  The boat burned to the water line and was owned by George Meyer, who was on the boat.
