A mother and daughter have died from burns they suffered when a propane tank exploded in the family's food truck in Philadelphia earlier this month, authorities said on Thursday. Jaylin Landaverry Galdamez, 17, and her mother, Olga Galdamez, 42, each were burned on more than 50 percent of their bodies from the explosion on July 2, authorities said. They died just days apart, the mother on July 20 and the daughter on July 22, said Jeff Moran, spokesman for the Philadelphia Medical Examiners Office. The pair was working in the truck at the time of the blast, which sent a propane tank flying 150 feet and injured nine other people.
