Man missing after Ohio explosion is found deadMissing Ohio man found dead more than 24 hours after explosion; 1 victim in critical condition
FAIRBORN, Ohio (AP) ' A fire official says the body of a 75-year-old man missing since a house exploded in western Ohio has been found.
Fairborn Fire Marshal Carl Day tells the Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/sBDatA ) that the man's body was found Sunday afternoon. A statement with more information is expected Sunday.
Six others had been injured in the explosion Saturday. It's believed to have been caused by a contracting crew that was digging for a water line and struck a natural gas line with a backhoe.
Among the victims are a 13-year-old listed as critical at Shriner's Hospital for Children in Cincinnati. Officials say a 1-year-old baby was in fair condition and a 5-year-old was in good condition Sunday morning at another hospital. A third child, whose age wasn't available, was treated and released Saturday.
Officials say two adults were taken to a hospital. Their conditions aren't available.
