TAIPEI, Taiwan – The death toll in a blaze at a Taiwan water park party over the weekend has risen to two with 200 still in intensive care.
Taiwan's Central News Agency says 19-year-old college student Liu Chih-wei died early Thursday after suffering burns over 90 percent of his body. A 20-year-old woman died on Monday after suffering similar injuries on Saturday night when colored powder sprayed from a stage caught fire.
The report says Liu had been a design student at Taiwan's College of Maritime Technology.
Investigators are looking into whether a spark might have triggered the explosion of colored corn powder thrown into the dancing crowd.
