(WALB) - A south Georgia man was badly burned in a work-related accident Friday, and the man who helped save his life died of a heart attack.

The two men worked for Wynn Electric Company in Fitzgerald. 

They were working on a panel box at Moore Lumber Company in Alapaha when the box exploded.  One man caught fire.

39-year old Stephen Spell jumped on him, put the fire out and rushed him to Tift Regional Hospital.

While the burn victim, whose name we don't know, was being treated, Spell went to visit his wife at work.  There, he collapsed and died of a heart attack. 

The other man was flown to the burn center in Augusta.
