Pittsburgh (Reuters) - A Pennsylvania coroner was attempting on Thursday to extract DNA from bone fragments thought to belong to a contractor who was working at a Chevron natural gas well when it exploded in Greene County last week.
Ian McKee, 27, from Morgantown, West Virginia, was reported missing after the Lanco 7H well exploded on February 11, causing a fire that raged for five days and kept emergency crews from approaching the scene. The bone fragments, burnt during the blaze, were recovered on Wednesday.
