FATHER, DAUGHTER SERIOUSLY BURNED IN EXPLOSION

(West College Corner, IN)--A West College Corner man and his 17-year-old daughter are continuing to recover following an explosion over the weekend.  Details of the incident involving Rob Marcum and his daughter Elena have been released.  Elena poured gasoline on a fire and ignited the container.  That’s when Marcum sprang into action.  "That's when I saw my daughter on fire running toward me.  I threw her on the ground and tried to get her to roll, roll, roll - trying to get the fire put out," Marcum said.  He will have skin graft surgery Wednesday.  Elena was even more seriously injured and will be hospitalized for months.  A community-wide benefit will take place in April.
