Water park explosion death toll rises to 8

Taipei, July 20 (CNA)
A 25-year-old man died Monday of injuries sustained in a fiery explosion at a water park in New Taipei last month, brining the death toll from the incident to eight.
Chen Meng-hung was pronounced dead at MacKay Memorial Hospital in Taipei before midday after his family decided not to continue apparently futile attempts to save him, the hospital said.
Of the nearly 500 people injured in the June 27 incident, 175 people remained listed in critical condition as of Sunday. (By Chen Ching-fang and Jay Chen)
