BP confirms that one of its employees died Monday afternoon after getting hurt in its Texas City refinery. The worker died at UTMB in Galveston. A BP spokesman would not identify the worker or say how he got hurt. The company did say it happened around 4pm near an ultra-cracker unit in the west side of the refinery.

That's roughly the same area of the refinery where 15 workers died in an explosion in March of 2005.
