Bizarre Blast Burns Youth

Kenneth Erickson, 12, of Clifton, N. J., recently was playing with matches underneath a highway culvert. Rocco Rossania of Irvington, N. J. halted his coal truck overhead because of a leak in the gasoline tank.

The gasoline flowed into the curvert, caught fire and exploded. Rossania learned of the hoy’s presence when he heard a scream. Ho pulled Kenneth out of the culvert and a passing motorist took the boy to St. Mary’s Hospital in Passaic.

The youth suffered severe burns as a result of the forbidden game and a bizarre coincidence.
