According to Spanish authorities, a British woman and her 8-year-old daughter were among the four people who were injured in an explosion at a Bahia Principe hotel. This woman, who has yet to be identified by authorities, suffered serious burns all over her face and scalp. After the explosion, she was rushed to a trauma hospital that is located on an island in the Canary Islands.

The daughter came out of the explosion a little bit better. She was rushed to a different hospital so that she could be treated for minor burns on her neck. The authorities hope to reunite the two soon, but doctors want to make sure that the mother is able to fully recover before they do so.

At first, the government of the Canary Islands said that a British man was also injured in the blast. He was also being treated for some minor burns and injuries. However, this statement was completely denied by a spokesman for Bahia Principe Hotels. This representative said that the woman’s husband and her other daughter were able to completely avoid being injured. That being said, they were in complete shock.

The other two people who were injured in the blast were a 38-year-old Belgian woman and a 30-something-year-old Spanish woman. They both only sustained minor injuries, but they are still in the hospital being treated. A police investigation has been started to determine the caused the explosion.
