CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - The Florence County Sheriff’s Office said that one of their investigators was injured in a boat explosion at a marina in Charleston.

According to Florence County Chief Deputy Glen Kirby, the investigator suffered a dislocated shoulder after the explosion blew him off the boat and into the water.

Emergency crews responded Sunday night after a boat reportedly exploded while it was being filled with gas.

The sheriff’s office said the investigator was in Charleston for the MAGA boat parade.

Two other people were injured in the incident, authorities say.
