Terrifying Wilmette Boat Explosion

This is so sad and so scary...

A boat explosion took place over the weekend at the Wilmette Harbor. It sadly killed Mitchell Sroka, 67-years-old from Arlington Heights. Another man was injured.

The men were refueling the two-engine boat just before the explosion at approximately 8 a.m. at the Sheridan Shores Yacht Club on Saturday.

The driver started one engine, but the second engine misfired and started on a second attempt. According to investigators, the boat exploded upon that second attempt.

Police said the explosion appears to be accidental.
