Hastings worker killed in an explosion
Nicholas Gunter, 29 was found dead Sunday at the Marathon Petroleum Co. site in St. Paul Park where he worked. An explosion went off at about 8:30 a.m. and was put out at 9:30. Gunter was unaccounted for, so a search went out for him. He was found dead at the 10,000-barrel tank, which had caught fire. The Star Tribune covered the story and I it had a lot more details than the Pioneer Press. They included his name and how long he had been working for the company. I was surprised that the Star Tribune had so much extra information because the articles both came out on Sunday. However, the Star Tribune's version was last updated 9 hours later.
