"All the information that was gathered [suggested] that it was some form of explosion while the men were working on a transmitter," ER24 spokeswoman Vanessa Jackson said.

Jackson said the four men were badly burnt and they sustained other injuries from shrapnel coming from the transmitter.
The cause of the accident was not known.
One of them was airlifted to Milpark hospital and the other three were taken to the Life Glynnwood hospital.
