Jesus Ruiz Delgado Killed in El Paso, TX, Explosion Accident

El Paso, TX -- December 1, 2016, Jesus Ruiz Delgado was killed as the result of an accident where an explosion occurred on the job.

A report by OSHA representatives indicate that the fatal accident occurred at 6501 Trowbridge Avenue. Delgado was reportedly working for The Brock Group, an industrial service provider, doing abrasive blasting.

At some point during this process, an explosion occurred. This incident inflicted fatal injuries to Delgado, and he died as a result.

Beyond this, OSHA has not released any further information on how the accident occurred. It's unclear if the accident is still being investigated.

Map of the Area


Yet another fatal work accident with so few details. It probably surprises a lot of people to know that OSHA does not do much in the way of assisting victims and their families after a work accident. Their primary goal is to issue fines to companies for rule violations. Reporting what actually happened in an accident isn't their job, and news outlets rarely pickup on the investigations unless the accident is deemed "news worthy."

There are many people who are looking for information after a work injury or fatality only to find there are no clear details on what happened. This is why I always advocate that those affected by a work accident should have a private investigation conducted. That way, all of the details that news outlets miss and OSHA neglects to report can be brought to light. With all of the facts at hand, victims and their families will have all of the information they need to take the first step to recovery.
