HUDSON, WI (WTAQ) - Hudson police say a golf course worker may have been lying on the floor in a pool of his own blood for several hours before he was found Friday afternoon.

35 year old Chad Wang was hurt when the sealed 55-gallon drum he was working on exploded at the Hudson Golf Course. Wang was using an acetylene torch at the time.

The explosion caused the lid on that drum to shoot up and hit him in the head, causing severe injuries.

A UPS driver found the worker from Spring Valley, Minnesota, semi-conscious.
