 Three adults and a four-year-old boy were hospitalized with first and second and degree burns on 60%  of their body after an explosion in an apartment building in Río Abajo, Panama City on  Wednesday morning, July 8.

The explosion was in the kitchen area in  Apt 10A on the top floor in Tower A in the Mystic Tower complex. The building was evacuated by the Fire Department which is investigating the cause of the explosion and has specialized personnel checking gas connections that are  supposed to be tightened every three years.

The adults were taken to Santo Tomas Hospital and the child to the Hospital de Nino. A two-year old toddler was unharmed.

We stayed in Hotel Avila one time and there was an explosion on a roof top close to us. I think it was a transformer. We were out on the top deck and it was loud. That is/was a good place to stay for tourists.
