MONT VERNON, N.H. (AP) - A cousin of a New Hampshire man fighting for his life after being severely burned in an explosion at a water park in Taiwan says his condition is stable.

Melanie Tamposi told The Telegraph of Nashua (https://bit.ly/1HhUoXb) on Wednesday that efforts are underway to collect blood for 26-year-old Alex Haas of Mont Vernon.

Tamposi said Haas had surgery to scrape skin off of his legs below the knee. He came to and said, “Where’s my family?” His parents and siblings are allowed in one at a time to have brief contact with him.

Haas, who was teaching in Taiwan, suffered the burns when a firestorm erupted after a flammable powder substance blew up over a park stage June 28. Three people died and 200 others remain in intensive care.
