Their fuel tank exploded, throwing the four men into the water.

Four fishermen from Kerala were taken to hospital in Abu Dhabi last night after an explosion burnt their boat and sent them flying.

According to witnesses, at roughly 8.30pm the four fishermen were returning to the fish market's docking area and, following the docking of their boat, began to refuel.

Their fuel tank exploded, throwing the four men into the water. Abu Dhabi firefighters arrived and extinguished the fire. The men were taken to a nearby hospital to receive treatment.
