First reported by the Centre Daily Times, a propane tank exploded in a lab at the Agricultural and Biological Engineering Building at around 5:30 p.m resulting in second-degree burns to the victim.

According to Penn State spokeswoman Lisa Powers, the explosion occurred while the student was doing tissue culture. University Park Police said that they are currently investigating the explosion.
