A fifth patient of the Formosa Fun Coast dust explosion was pronounced dead on Sunday morning at the Tzu Chi General Hospital, reports confirmed.
The announcement came after the tragic incident on June 27 that injured nearly 500 partygoers. There are currently over 200 patients still in critical condition.
The 22-year-old Huang Hsiao-hsuan, who was in critical condition with 3rd degree burns covering 95 percent of her body, passed away at 7:28 a.m. despite efforts to rescue her.
Huang’s mother, who claimed to have taken extra jobs on the side in order to pay for her daughter’s medical bills, said she was willing to donate her savings to help other families of the water park victims. [FULL STORY]
