Explosion at hyperbaric chamber center



A woman and a boy are en route to Broward General Medical Center after they were injured in an apparent explosion at a hyperbaric oxygen facility.

A Broward Sheriff’s Office helicopter is flying the child to the hospital while the adult woman is being transported by ground. The cause of the reported explosion at 4001 N. Ocean Drive was not immediately known early Friday afternoon.


Town emergency crews are on the scene and traffic in the area is being diverted around the site.

Employees in the sheriff’s office’s media relations office and the town’s volunteer fire department had no additional information just before 12:30 p.m.
