Update….The Little Boy Has Succumbed To His Injuries…


‘LAUDERDALE-BY-THE-SEA – A 4-year-old boy seriously burned in a hyperbaric chamber explosion last month in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea died today from his injuries, his family’s attorney said.

Francesco Martinisi was the second person to die from the May 1 fiery accident at Ocean Hyperbaric Oxygen Neurologic Center. His grandmother, Vincenza Pesce, 62, died from her injuries a day after the blast.

“This is the tragic end of a very sad story that should never have happened,” said Russell S. Adler, a Fort Lauderdale attorney representing the Martinisi family.

Authorities said a blast dislodged a tube attached to the hyperbaric chamber, which resulted in an explosion and flash fire. An investigation is underway.

Francesco had been at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami.

“The family is in mourning, and has no comment at this time,” Adler said.’
