Updated August 22 A third person who was injured in an August 15 house explosion in Wyatt, MO has died. The death of Myranda Gale Golden, 22, followed the deaths of her husband Corey Coleman, 23, and their 3-year-old daughter. All of them died from injuries they sustained in the blast that injured seven other members of her family. The surviving family members are said to be hospitalized in stable condition.
Philip Swift and Tyler Larkins were outside when they heard the explosion around 7 am and rushed to help, according to a KFVS report. The house was engulfed in flames but they heard screaming and ran in, grabbed three small children, and pulled them out, they said.
Investigators from the State Fire Marshal’s office and the state propane commission believe propane gas was the source of the blast which occurred in the small community located about 160 miles south of St. Louis. Sheriff’s Capt. Barry Morgan told ABC News 7 that they have narrowed down the possible sources to a water heater or a stove, both of which were fueled by propane.
