BROWNSVILLE, Texas (AP) - Police say three people have been seriously injured when a package they opened inside their South Texas home exploded.
Brownsville police spokesman J.J. Trevino says the family found the package outside their home and opened it early Thursday morning.
All three victims - a mother, father and their 5-year-old daughter - received extensive burns. Police are not releasing their names. Additional explosive devices in the package that did not explode were later detonated by the bomb squad.
Trevino says the motive or whether the family had received earlier threats is unknown. He said there was extensive damage inside the home.
The Brownsville Herald reports the girl was airlifted to Shriners Hospital for Children in Galveston. Her parents were airlifted to Brooke Army Medical Center burn unit in San Antonio.
