GROSSE POINTE FARMS (AP) – A DTE Energy employee responding to a gas leak in Grosse Pointe Farms has been killed.

Department of Public Safety officials say 50-year-old Thomas Issac was found Tuesday slumped over in a 5-foot hole with gas rapidly escaping from a ruptured pipe.

Another employee who was at the scene of the leak called 911.

Issac had apparently responded to a reported gas leak and was placing a flow seal clamp over the hole in the line when it ruptured.

Issac was a 20-year employee with DTE.
