Georgia Power Worker Burned In Explosion Dies


MILTON, Ga. -- A Georgia Power worker burned by a ruptured gas line in July has died, the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed to Channel 2 Action News.
The Medical Examiner’s Office told Channel 2 that Kylan Warren, 24, died overnight.

Warren was working in a crane bucket when a work crew digging a hole to replace telephone poles hit a gas line in Milton. That set off an explosion, causing flames to shoot into the air. The flames left warren trapped and scorched the bucket. Warren suffered burns to 80 percent of his body.

A second worker was treated for burns to his hands.
A motorcycle benefit ride was planned for Saturday, and it will go on in Warren's memory.
