Memphis, TN — A worker who was critically injured in November’s Memphis Light, Gas & Water explosion has passed away, news reports confirmed. They said that Jason Webb, 35, died at a hospital recently from the injuries he sustained in the November explosion.
If you recall, Webb was a part of a work crew that was hurt in an explosion on Tuesday, November 25, 2014. The crew was working underground for Memphis Light, Gas & Water as they did a project underneath Winterpark Drive in the Hickory Hills area of Memphis.
Something went wrong while they were working and gas was ignited, sending flames around their workspace and catching some of the workers on fire. Jason Webb was one of the workers who was injured, along with a man named Cedric Fields.
Both Jason Webb and another man were in critical condition while the others were less seriously harmed. Recently, Webb passed away in a local hospital, but the condition of the other man wasn’t released and it’s not clear if he’s even still in the hospital.
