On Wednesday, September 25, 2018, two employees were injured due to an explosion at Blanche Ely High School in Pompano Beach, Florida. The City of Pompano Beach Fire Department was called to the scene to render assistance for this Florida workers’ compensation accident. Two of the school’s maintenance workers suffered life threatening third degree burns and were immediately airlifted to a trauma hospital. Fortunately, no students were injured and they were all evacuated.
After the accident, activities at the school were suspended until further notice. The principal later issued a statement stating that the two injured employees were in critical condition but were expected to survive. He added that there would be a special meeting with the Broward County School Board and City officials in order to determine the safeness of the buildings so that employees and students could return.
