ATLANTA (AP) -- A Georgia Power lineman severely burned in an explosion last month has died of his injuries.

Company officials said Kylan Warren died early Saturday morning.
He was 25.

Warren was working in Milton last month when crews digging a
hole to replace telephone poles hit a gas line. He had to jump 30 feet from the a utility truck bucket to the ground.

He suffered burns over 80 percent of his body.

His colleagues were taking part in a charity motorcycle ride Saturday from Atlanta to his hometown in Elijay.

The proceeds will go to Warren's family.
