The mother and daughter who were seriously injured when the food truck they were working in exploded in Feltonville have died, the Philadelphia Medical Examiner's Office confirmed Thursday.
Olga Galdamez, 42, died Sunday, and her daughter, Jaylin Landaverry-Galdamez, 17, died Tuesday from the burns they suffered in the July 1 explosion.
Police said they believed the truck, parked at Third Street and Wyoming Avenue, exploded because of a leak in one of the propane tanks attached to the back.
Another person injured in the explosion, a 27-year-old woman who is related to Galdamez, remained at Temple University Hospital in fair condition. A 23-year-old man who had been passing by the truck as it exploded was initially listed in critical condition at Temple but has been released.
