Second victim dies in treatment plant explosion

Posted on April 19th, 2012 No Comments

The second victim of the deadly waste water treatment plant explosion succumbed to his injuries on Monday after nearly six weeks in the hospital. The 57 year-old maintenance man survived the first victim by more than two weeks.

The two men were maintenance workers at an Ohio treatment plant when wiring they were working on sparked a buildup of methane gas. The Ohio Bureau of Workers Compensation is currently trying to determine what caused the buildup of methane.

The first victim, a 59 year-old assistant maintenance man, died on March 29. Both men died of second and third-degree burns that covered nearly 95 percent of their bodies.

Our deepest sympathies go out to the men’s friends and families.
