Gas bottle explodes, injures boy

Posted at 7:36am Tuesday 29 Jan, 2013

An 11-year-old Motueka boy is in Nelson Hospital after a gas bottle exploded burning his upper body.

He was airlifted to hospital last night by the Nelson Marlborough Rescue Helicopter.

A spokesperson for the rescue helicopter says the gas bottle was being used with a barbecue he was cooking when it exploded on him.

He was treated by the on-board intensive care paramedic and flown from Kateriteri to Nelson Hospital.
