Tugboat engine room explodes off Seaside Heights; one injured
By REGINA SCHAFFER Staff Writer, (609) 272-7211

An engine-room explosion rocked a 50-foot tugboat located about nine miles off the coast of Seaside Heights on Sunday afternoon, sending one man to the hospital with burns, according to the U.S. Coast Guard.
The tugboat, known by the name Robert J. Bouchard, was towing an empty oil barge off of Seaside Heights when an explosion in the engine room occurred at about noon Sunday, according to Petty Officer John Edwards. Edwards said the Coast Guard did not know early Sunday what exploded in the engine room or what may have caused the explosion.

Edwards did not have any information available on where the tugboat was coming from or where it was heading, but he did say the boat's home port was listed as New York City.
The boat may have been on a haul from New York to Virginia, Edwards said. "Tugs are a little different then normal cargo vessels," Edwards said.

Kelsey Cooper, a 35-year-old crewman, was injured with burns, Edwards said.

A total of six people were on board the tugboat. Cooper was airlifted by rescue helicopter to St. Barnabas hospital in Newark, the closest burn treatment center. The man's condition was not available. After the injured man was rescued, two crewmen remained on the oil barge to close it up, while three crewmen were on their way to the U.S. Coast Guard's Manasquan Station on Sunday afternoon, Edwards said.

The other five men were all uninjured. A rescue helicopter from the U.S. Coast Guard, Atlantic City Group Air Station, a 47-foot boat and a 23-foot boat, both belonging to the U.S. Coast Guard, and a New Jersey State Police boat all responded to the scene.
A good Samaritan boat also responded, Edwards said.
