Doddridge Explosion Victim Dies
Antero Resources said one of the five workers burned in a July 7 explosion at a drilling operation in Doddridge County has died. Vice President Al Schopp said Tommy Paxton worked for one of the three subcontractors at the site near New Milton in Doddridge County, but he wouldn't say which one. The Allegheny County Medical Examiner's office said Paxton died Tuesday in the burn unit of West Penn Hospital in Pittsburgh. He was 45-years old and from Walton. The site is still idle while an investigation is conducted.
