The body of a 75-year-old man, which went missing after Saturday's explosion in Ohio, has been found, according to the Fairborn Fire Chief.
The explosion occured Saturday at about 2 p.m. when workers struck a gasline at a duplex on Wayne Drive in Fairborn. The blast destroyed the building, injuring another man, a young teenage boy and three children. According to officials, the man and teenage boy were rushed to the Miami Valley Hospital.
A 13-year-old was transferred in critical condition to Shriner's Hospital for Children, one of about four hospitals in the country specializing in pediatric burns. The three children, aged 5, 3 and 1, were transported to Dayton Children's Medical Center.
Homes on both sides of the destroyed duplex also suffered damage, and debris could be found as far as a block away. The Red Cross provided food, shelter and clothing for the affected victims. Neighbors were evacuated from their homes after the explosion, but have since been allowed to return.
Work was being carried out on a waterpipe and an adjacent gas pipe possibly got damaged at that time, leading to the explosion.
