13 people taken to hospital after explosion at Ohio metal factory

By: April Carson

On Monday, a factory based in Ohio experienced an explosion that resulted in multiple people being hospitalized. In total, over a dozen individuals required medical treatment. The causes of the incident are still under investigation.

At around 3 p.m., the Oakwood Village Fire Department arrived at I. Schumann & Co., a manufacturing plant that manufactures copper alloys, to find 13 victims needing medical attention and rushed them to MetroHealth Medical Center hospital for treatment following an explosion onsite.

Fortunately, none of the individuals sustained life-threatening injuries, but they are being kept under observation due to possible smoke inhalation. The Fire Department has yet to determine the cause of the incident and has only stated that it is still under investigation.

Two of the individuals were reported to be in a critical state due to the blast, while another was wounded but refused medical attention.

Stephenie Davis, a witness to the incident, wrote on Facebook: "Our building experienced what felt like an earthquake. There was an ear-deafening explosion followed by debris flying and landing on our roof."

The local authorities have shut down the area around the factory for safety reasons and are continuing to monitor the situation. The families of those injured have been informed.

She documented the event through multiple pictures and videos, showcasing a huge cloud of smoke towering up from the factory as well as the destruction of automobiles in the parking lot nearby.

Fox 8 reports that multiple automobiles were set ablaze due to the explosion. Fortunately, Oakwood Village Fire Department was able to extinguish most of the flames by 5 p.m., though it remains unknown what caused this shocking incident in the first place.

The fire department is currently working with the Ohio State Fire Marshal to investigate the origin of the blast and determine the cause of its destruction. As a safety precaution, authorities have urged residents in neighboring areas to stay away from the factory until further notice.

On Monday evening, I. Schumann and Co. issued a statement in response to the unexpected explosion that occurred at their Bedford, Ohio facility earlier today; confirming reports of injured employees as well as significant property damage. In their statement, they said they are “saddened by the events that occurred and would like to express our deepest condolences to those affected”.

The incident has sparked a debate on workplace safety protocols in factories and industrial settings all over the country, with many questioning if it could have been prevented with better safety regulation adherence.

"The well-being of our staff is of the greatest importance to us, and right now we are prioritizing aiding those who immediately responded to help our employees. We are committed to supporting them with all the resources at our disposal." said the factory's owner.

The authorities have launched an investigation into the cause of the explosion, and are currently assessing the situation to ensure it will not happen again in the future.

This occurrence follows the derailment of a 150-car train in East Palestine, Ohio earlier this month, raising worries about public health and safety. The incident is being treated as a reminder of the need for diligence and adherence to safety standards, both in our personal lives and in business operations.
