A parasail boat burst into flames and several people are injured off the coast of South Padre Island.
It is part of a simulation exercise to better train emergency crews with the South Padre Island beach patrol, fire department and Coast Guard crews in the drill. Officials hope this helps strengthen coordination between all agencies and help them learn from any mistakes made.
