Two Men Burned In Explosion At Indy Business

Paramedics rushed two men to the hospital Thursday after an explosion at an east side business. The blast at Trilithic Inc., 9710 Park Davis Drive, occurred about 9:30 a.m. as workers from a subcontractor worked on the electrical system. "It was a pretty massive explosion," employee Mike Wilson said. Jim Allen, 44, was taken to Wishard Hospital with first- and second-degree burns to his hand and forehead. Jerome McKinney, 29, received first-degree burns on his neck. Both are in stable condition and likely will be released Thursday, authorities said. No other Trilithic employees were hurt. Damage was estimated at $150,000, according to officials. Trilithic makes electronic parts for the cable television and wireless telephone industries.

An interesting news story. As a paramedic, I know how insidious electrical burns can be, because the burn can actually extend from the point of contact to ground and compromise vital organs on the way.

Is there any information to indicate what the two men were doing with the electrical system when the explosion occurred?

Mike,

Nothing yet on any details on how the accident occurred. When those come available I will certainly post them.
