Mother, Daughter Die From Food Truck Explosion Injuries

The mother and daughter working at a Feltonville food truck when a propane tank exploded have died from their injuries.

A family member confirmed the mother and daughter injured by a Philadelphia food truck explosion have died from their injuries. The family member told Philly’s Telemundo affiliate that Olga Galdernez, 42, died Sunday and her daughter, 17-year-old Jaylin Landaverry, died on Tuesday night.

A prayer service was held for the victims at Little Flower on Wednesday night.

Thirteen people were injured in the July 1st explosion in Feltonville. A propane tank on the back of the food truck at Third and Wyoming ignited; police believe the unused tank was leaking. A passerby smelled propane before the blast.

The tank that exploded was found 95 feet away, in a rowhome’s yard.
