Police in Manorhaven, NY are investigating a deadly boat explosion.

Just before 3:00 p.m. Wednesday, a 33-foot Carver motor boat was refueling at Manhasset Bay Marina when it exploded, killing the boat’s owner. A passenger on the boat jumped into the water and wasn’t injured.

Police said a marina worker suffered burns to his arms and face as he towed the burning boat away from other boats and docks.

The burning boat eventually floated to a nearby dock, setting it on fire, and caused damage to two more boats.

The cause of the explosion has not been determined.
