An explosion at a Rhode Island beach earlier this week left a woman hospitalized. An electrical line running underneath the beach will be unearthed and examined as investigators try to figure out if it is connected with blast, according to a report from ABC News.
Several beachgoers said they smelled gas after the explosion Saturday at the Salty Brine State Beach in Narragansett. The electrical line is right where the incident occurred and is about a foot under the sand.
After the apparent explosion, the beach was evacuated. A bomb squad responded to the scene and the beach was sampled. The Associated Press reported that investigators have not even found physical evidence of an explosion. An official from the state fire marshal's office told ABC News there was no evidence of any device.
