A boat explosion at the Lake of the Ozarks injures two men from Texas.
It happened Wednesday afternoon in Davey Hollow Cove, at the 11 mile marker of the Lake. The Highway Patrol says 52-year-old Allen Wienecke had just re-fueled his boat and tried to restart it, when it exploded and caught on fire.
Wienecke was treated for minor injuries at the scene. His son, 20-year-old Jonathen Wienecke, was taken to Lake Regional Hospital with moderate injuries.
