A woman reportedly flew through the air and on to a pile of rocks after an explosion jettisoned her out of her chair on a Rhode Island beach Saturday.
Witnesses report that an explosion “under the sand” sent the 50-year-old woman sailing through the air and onto some nearby rocks. She has been taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.
The explosion happened on Salty Brine Beach in Narragansett, RI at approximately noon.

Police are now saying that the person of interest had just dumped shells on the beach and that there is no evidence of an explosive device, but there is definitely evidence of a “ground disturbance.”
The beach re-opened Sunday with authorities saying there is no threat to public safety. The cause of the blast is still unknown. (where is Agent Moulder these days?)
