Chevron Worker Dies

One of two workers burned earlier this week at the Chevron refinery in Pascagoula has died. A spokesman for Chevron says Chad Grimes died last night from his injuries. The other worker, Benito Barron, is still in critical condition at the USA Burn Center in Mobile.

Both men were from Texas and doing work for a subcontractor at Chevron. Investigators from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration are looking into the accident.

Plant officials say the men were burned by a mixture of hot water and petroleum that overflowed from a reservoir.
