An explosion at a newly drilled oil well in western North Dakota killed two workers and severely injured two others, officials said.

Brendan Wegner and Ray Hardy is the names of the two workers killed.

Two other men - Doug Hysjulien of Williston and Michael Twinn of Tioga - were hospitalized in critical condition in the burn unit at Regions Hospital in St. Paul.

Authorities have not yet determined the cause of the explosion

RSOE Source

Found this on RSOE...

I also went looking for Another Source For Confirmation

The second source is pretty much the same info that is found on RSOE.

I wanted to share, and bring forth these two workers story.

My condolences go out to the families.

It's always tragic when people die.

But there is something that gives it an even sadder tone,
when the person is killed "Making a living", working to put food on the table.
