Two injured in horror gas bottle explosion at Gold Coast cafe

Two people have suffered serious burns after a gas bottle exploded at a new cafe on the Gold Coast this afternoon.

Emergency crews were called to a coffee shop on Energy Crescent in Robina around 12.15pm following reports of the explosion.

A man and woman, both aged in their 20s, suffered significant facial, limb and abdominal burns.


The pair, who are believed to be the owners of the business, were treated at the scene by critical care paramedics.

They have since been taken to the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital in a serious but stable condition, with the QAS High Acuity Response Unit on board.

A Queensland Fire and Emergency Service Spokesperson confirmed to myGC that the scene has now been declared safe.

Investigations into the incident are ongoing.
