Surviving worker from Arvin explosion released from hospital
Scott Robles was airlifted from the accident scene Tuesday suffering from burns. Officials with Kern Medical Center said Wednesday that he had been discharged.
Robles was part of a two-person crew using a torch to remove pipes for a scrap metal recycling company when vapors inside the tank ignited and caused the explosion.
Kern County sheriff's officials say 24-year-old Cesar Martinez, of Arvin, died at the scene.
Sheriff's officials say the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health is investigating the incident.
