Casino boat fire victim dies after going home

WPLG-TV reports the SunCruz Casino boat caught fire about 4 p.m. off the coast near Harborpointe Drive and Bay Boulevard, Doll said.

The Port Richey owners of the boat have not responded to our calls.

He said they were outside when they saw the smoke coming from the engine in the back of the boat.

"50 people on board and all safely made it to shore", Pasco County Fire Rescue posted to Twitter early Sunday evening.

A casino boat with 50 people aboard caught fire Sunday off the coast of Port Richey, officials said.

"We are just deeply saddened by the loss of that passenger and about any pain or trouble that has been caused to our passengers relating to this incident", she said. As the vessel turned back, flames kicked up and people began jumping overboard into shallow water. "The fire was moving fast.

It was really hard to watch but we were glad they were close to shore and our whole neighborhood came together to pass blankets and whatever care they needed", Bakr Jandali of Port Richey told CNN.




Video footage showed nothing but the boat's charred frame remaining as the flames continued to burn.

Luckily the crew and other passengers had a safe escape as they plunged into the icy cold water in the cold chilly day on the Gulf coast.

The Sun Cruz Casino boat is one of a number of shuttles serving Florida's Tropical Breeze Casino.

"They actually walked to the shore", he said.

Jandali told the newspaper that his family and neighbors rushed to bring towels and water to the evacuated passengers, at least one of whom collapsed and vomited upon reaching the shore. "They were so cold".

The hospital staff reported her death to the Sheriffs Office at about 1 a.m. Monday.
