VALCOURT, Que. — One of two workers severely burned in a factory blast last week has died.
Sebastien Tardif, a 38-year-old father of two, was injured Friday in an explosion at Bombardier Recreational Products in this town located about 130 km east of Montreal.
The vehicle tester and a security guard were working the night shift when police officers several kilometres away saw a fireball.
A fire was raging when they arrived on scene.
Tardif was taken to hospital in critical condition.
Bombardier says the security guard, a man in his 50s, remains in a Quebec City burn unit.
The factory is a research site for jet skis and ATVs.
Provincial police are investigating.
