Perry County man recovering from explosion

Posted: Updated:

A Rye Township man ended up in the hospital following an explosion in his kitchen. Family members say he was mixing chlorine when it blew up.

His son says nothing like that has happened in the three decades his father has had the pool.

EMTs and family members say the explosion could have happened as a result of the man using an old bucket that was previously used to mix other chemicals.

He was taken to Penn State Hershey Medical Center and was treated in the ICU unit.

His daughter says he suffered hearing loss after the blast, but he has since regained it.

Family members say he will be okay and they expect him home within a day or two.
