A joint investigation by the Moncks Corner Police Department and the Berkeley County Coroner’s office is underway, looking into the death of a worker at a Monck Corner salvage yard on Thursday.
According to investigators, around 8:45 in the morning a worker was using a cutting torch to remove the top of a barrel that had formerly been used to store an as of yet unidentified flammable liquid. An explosion resulted that sent thirty-three year old Stephen Kuffel, a resident of Monck Corner, to the hospital. He was later pronounced dead. An autopsy has been scheduled to determine his exact cause of death.
