Fumes Kill Father, Son Working On Lift Station

Updated: September 5, 2012, 3:34 PM

GETTYSBURG, SD -

A second person has died after being overcome by fumes while working on a lift station in Potter County. 

Firefighters wearing protective masks recovered 20-year-old Erik Hansen's body from the scene at West Whitlock Resort Tuesday.  The Potter County Sheriff says when neighbors pulled Eric's father, 50-year-old Kirk Hansen, from the lift station he was in critical condition.  He died Wednesday morning.

The Potter County Sheriff received a call about the distressed men shortly before 1:30 Tuesday.  He says they were standing in a hole about four feet deep and were overcome by methane gas.  Early reports suggest the men were not wearing protective breathing gear when they entered the lift station.
