"Lava bomb" crashes through roof of Hawaii tour boat, injuring 23

Lava entering the ocean

The people were aboard a tour boat that took visitors to see lava plunging into the ocean.

The fire department said the nine other passengers drove themselves to the hospital. Firefighters said the lava punctured the boat's roof, leaving a gaping hole.

In this May 20, 2018 file photo, people watch a plume of steam as lava enters the ocean near Pahoa, Hawaii.

State and local police and the DLNR were investigating the incident, which occurred shortly after dawn near the eastern-most edge of the Big Island, where lava from the 10-week-old Kilauea eruption has been flowing into the Pacific since early June.

The tours depart from the Wailoa Small Boat Harbor in Hilo at 4 a.m. daily.

Ambulances took her and three others to the hospital after the boat returned to shore.

"It's most likely part of the fissure 8 flow that's entering the ocean-and possibly a submarine tumulus that built up underwater and emerged above sea level", the observatory said.

He says he then navigated his vessel to about 250 yards from the lava.

One of the passengers in stable condition is a woman in her 20s with a fractured femur, authorities said. The rest of the passengers suffered burns, scrapes and other superficial injuries.

'As we were exiting the zone, all of a sudden everything around us exploded, ' he said. It prohibits vessels from getting closer than 984 feet (300 meters) from ocean-entry points.

Government officials have also been warning about the dangers of laze, potentially unsafe mix of hydrochloric acid, steam and tiny glass particles in the air that results from the interaction of the lava and the water.

He said that the crew didn't pick up on any warning signs before the explosion.

For a few days, Hawaii had a tiny new island off the Kapoho coast.

Big Island resident Ikaika Marzo told Hawaii News Now there was a "huge explosion at the ocean entry".
