None of the injuries was listed as grave. He added: "I am generally fine and having a good, well-deserved beer in this moment".
"Running down a mountain pelted by rocks, dodging burning boulders and boiling steam - not an experience I ever ever want to repeat", she wrote.
But as the BBC's Morelle observed on Twitter, Thursday's event served as a "reminder of how risky and unpredictable volcanoes can be".
Snow-covered Mount Etna, Europe's most active volcano, spews lava during an eruption in the early hours of Thursday, March 16, 2017. The activity was reported at its southeast crater. Departures were continuing as scheduled.
Tourists and journalists from the BBC were among the injured, though that didn't stop them from filming the ordeal. "The snow then melts into water, then becomes vapor, and the pressure on the cap made of lava eventually leads to an explosion called phreatic eruption".
According to Italian newspaper La Repubblica, the explosion could be seen from Catania and nearby towns at the bottom of the mountain.
There are teams of experts and guides who are familiar with the terrain and understand what is safe, and what isn't - the same applied to the crew and group of tourists at the site.
"There were 10 injuries", he said.
Global science reporter Rebecca Morelle described the scene in a series of tweets.
An explosion at the volcano in 1979 killed nine people and wounded 23 others.
In another astonishing shot, Morelle shared a photo of her camerawoman holding up a burned-through jacket that she said had been hit by a hot rock.
