Gas company employee faces uncertain future after Durham blast

By  | 

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - An energy company employee who suffered critical injuries from last week's fatal gas explosion in North Carolina faces an uncertain future.

The family of PSNC employee Jay Rambeaut told WRAL on Tuesday that he has 150 holes in his chest from debris. He also has a skull fracture and debris in his brain.

Rambeaut's sister-in-law, Donna Jackson, said had had gone into cardiac arrest but doctors were able to revive him. She said it's likely Rambeaut's wife and son will both have to leave work in order to care for him.

Rambeaut was among the first on the scene in Durham when there was a report of gas leak. The ensuing explosion killed one man and injured 25 others
