The mother had also died from injuries sustained from the apartment explosion.

 

MEDINA, Ohio — Two people are dead, and several others hurt, after an early morning apartment explosion and fire in Medina.

It happened around 3:18 a.m. Thursday at the Medina Village Apartments on Springbrook Drive.

An 18-year-old man who was bedridden with autism died, authorities say, when a wall came down on him.

His parents couldn’t get him out of the building, and sustained burns to 80 percent of their bodies.

“The building was physically blown apart,” Medina Fire Chief Bob Painter said.

Five other residents were treated for minor injuries.
