One killed, seven injured in Massachusetts work accident after condo explodes

A Boston work accident has claimed the life of a 48-year-old electrician, who died hours after being pulled from a Norfolk house explosion, the Boston Herald reported.

Seven other people were seriously injured in the incident, after the WInterberry Way condominium blew up. Fire investigators believe the cause of the explosion may have been a propane gas leak at the job site. Two co-workers, ages 43 and 17, remained hospitalized through the weekend.

A Boston wrongful death lawyer or Massachusetts workers’ compensation attorney should always be consulted whenever an employee is seriously injured or killed in an accident while on the job.

Five other people, including two area firefighters, were treated and released at area hospitals. The victim was trapped in the basement for 90 minutes. The condo building is under construction at The Village at River’s Edge, a development for people 55 and older.

The 1,000 gallon underground propane tank was installed and inspected on April 20.
