FORT LAUDERDALE (AP) - Authorities say a cruise ship passenger was injured when a canister exploded, in one of two separate incidents at Port Everglades.
Authorities say the first canister that exploded was a fire extinguisher that a worker threw in back of a truck. The vehicle's movement caused it to shoot through the truck's window and hit a man who was disembarking from the ship.
Authorities say the it knocked him to the ground. He was taken to a hospital.
Later, a crew member was unloading another canister from the ship when the can's nozzle was jostled and also exploded. The canister shot out of the man's arms, but no one was injured.
