A woman is in critical condition and a child is recovering from minor injuries after a propane tank exploded Saturday morning inside an RV in Oxford Circle.
Police said the 36-year-old woman was cooking inside the moving RV when the explosion occurred shortly before 10:15 a.m. at East Cheltenham Avenue and Oakland Street.
Medics rushed the woman to Temple University Hospital, where she was being treated for burns to both legs and hands.
Police said a 5-year-old boy suffered minor scrapes to both legs but was not hospitalized. Two other adult occupants of the RV were not injured, according to investigators.
