PORT RICHEY, Fla. (WFLA) — A woman who was on a casino shuttle boat that caught fire in Pasco County on Sunday has died from her injuries, officials say.

An official from the medical examiner’s office has identified the woman as 42-year-old Carrie Dempsey.

A massive fire engulfed the casino shuttle boat in Port Richey on Sunday afternoon, forcing crew members and passengers to jump into the water to save their lives.

Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point spokesman Kurt Conover said Monday that Dempsey died late Sunday, shortly after she arrived at the hospital’s emergency room at 10 p.m. He said she had apparently gone home after the fire but became ill. A cause of death has not been determined. He said eight other passengers were treated at the hospital and released.
