MONT VERNON, N.H. —The family of a Mont Vernon man who was severely burned in a Taiwan water park explosion said his condition has worsened.

Alex Haas, 26, suffered second- and third-degree burns over 90 percent of his body when a firestorm erupted after a flammable powder substance blew up over a stage at a Taiwan park.

The family said Haas has been treated well at the Taiwan hospital, but he needs American medical care as soon as possible.

The family has launched a GoFundMe page and is hoping to raise enough money to bring Haas home to be cared for in the U.S.

Haas has been teaching English in Taiwan for almost a year.
