WORKER DIES OF BURNS IN INDUSTRIAL ACCIDENT

A Lancaster man burned in an industrial accident earlier this month has died, authorities said Sunday.

Keith Bosch, 30, of Broadway died Saturday afternoon in Erie County Medical Center, where he had been a patient since Dec. 7. He had suffered third-degree burns over 60 percent of his body, according to the Erie County medical examiner's office.

Cheektowaga police had said an electrical explosion occurred at ITT Standard on Standard Parkway, where Bosch, who worked for Ferguson Electric Electric Construction Co., was installing transformers.

Two co-workers heard an explosion and turned around to see Bosch and his clothes on fire. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating the accident.
