Six Injured After Boating Accident in Huntington Beach

A boat ended up exploding in Huntington Beach on Sunday, November 1st. Warner Fire Station was one of the first responders at the scene. Huntington Fire Department and Orange County Sheriff Department will be leading the investigation to the case.

A boat was sailing on Huntington Harbour, near Peter’s Landing when it suddenly went up in flames. It was occupied by six people during the time of the incident, including a 3-year-old child and a 70-year-old. All of them were injured due to the explosion, sustaining burns of varying severity. A 7-year-old who was on the boat was thrown into the water due to the impact of the explosion and ended up with the most severe burn wounds. They were rescued by another boater, Trent McWhinney, who witnessed the incident. Authorities are still investigating the cause of the fire.

Can File A Claim Against a Boat Operator After A Boating Accident?

Yes. In fact, if the boat was not yours, and you were renting it from an operator, then boat insurance should have been included when you pay for the service. Thus, it is important that you file a claim to the boat operator so that they can process the insurance payout. If you don’t do this, then you will not receive any compensation for any injuries or damages that you sustain from the accident.
