Three of those injured on the tour boat operated by Lava Ocean Tours were transported by ambulance to Hilo Medical Center in Hilo, Hawaii, shortly after the boat returned to Wailoa Small Boat Harbor in Hilo around 7 a.m. HST, the Tribune-Herald reported.

"A 20-year old woman received major trauma to her leg and the others suffered burns and scrapes", DLNR said in its Facebook post.

Snyder said neither the exact location of the incident nor the total number of passengers aboard the boat were immediately known.

The tour boat passengers aren't the first to be hit by a flying "lava bomb" from the Kilauea volcano, with Hawaiian local Darryl Clinton lucky to be alive after being struck in May.

The water flashes to steam, which causes the lava to explode into fragments, she said.

The people were aboard a tour boat that takes visitors to see lava plunging into the ocean from a volcano that has been erupting for two months. "Just really good people". "I mean this was a group of people that never met before, and they were brought together", he said. We expect a high rate of earthquakes (25-35 per hour) to continue until the next collapse/explosion event occurs later today. Despite the hazards, several companies operate such tours.

Officials had warned of the danger of getting close to lava entering the ocean, saying the interaction could create clouds of acid and fine glass.

Injured passengers are being interviewed in hospital.

Passengers were injured where the established lava flow entered the ocean, triggering an explosion. On July 11, the Coast Guard changed their mandatory safety perimeter zone around ocean entries (Kapoho and Kalea) from 100 meters to 50 meters for licensed lava tour boat operators.
