A TimkenSteel worker involved in an explosion in late July died late Friday night, according to his wife.
Joe Ferrall, 34, of Alliance, passed away in the Cleveland MetroHealth Medical Center’s Burn Unit as he was treated for injuries sustained in an explosion at the TimkenSteel Faircrest plant July 26.
Ferrall was under sedation and on a ventilator to help heal his severely damaged lungs.
Ferrall leaves behind three sons and a wife.
TimkenSteel released the following statement following Ferrall’s passing:
