Victims in Holmes Drive Explosion Reported in Stable Condition

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

The two men who were severely injured in Friday morning's home explosion on Holmes Drive are now said to be in stable condition.

Robert Farley, 60, and Ryan Conner, 25, who lives at the home, along with Ryan's mother, were both flown to a burn unit in San Antonio with severe burns. Conner is also said to have several cuts on his body, as well as broken bones.

Ryan's aunt said they are waiting for Ryan to open his eyes. He's been unconscious since he was rescued from the rubble, and has since gone through multiple surgeries. His family wants to know precisely what happened.

"We were trying to piece it together, because one eye witness said they rescued the mother, father and two kids and found another guy all cut up," said Linda Fine, Ryan's aunt. "That was Ryan. They drug him out, too."

While fire officials are still investigating, they believe a natural gas release was the source of the explosion.
