1 Mangrove Cafe burn victim released from Tampa hospital; 1 still critical

A victim of a Naples restaurant propane gas explosion has been released from the Tampa Bay Regional Burn Center.

Due to Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), hospital spokesman John Dunn said he could not say when Donny Kingston was discharged from the hospital.

Meanwhile, Thomas Smith, who was the most seriously injured of the three, remained in critical condition on Tuesday, also at the Tampa burn center.

Fire officials believe the fire on Jan. 10 at Mangrove Cafe and subsequent explosion ignited from a propane leak next to Kingston’s running car.
