One of the three employees of the state-owned utility AEE, who were injured in a July 13 explosion at a power plant near the Puerto Rican capital, died on Tuesday of the severe burns he suffered.

The Industrial Hospital of the State Insurance Fund announced the death of Luis Rivera Rivera, the most critically injured of those hurt in the explosion at the power plant that is the largest supplier of electricity for greater San Juan.

Another AEE employee died in the blast.
