A man who alleges he suffered severe burns and permanent disfigurement while working at the Graphic Packaging mill in Queen City, Texas, in January 2019 is suing the company in a Texarkana federal court.

Montgomery "Monte" Crompton was blasted with 200 degree Fahrenheit steam for 56 seconds on his face, upper torso, legs and back while working to repair a hole in a blowdown header in the mill's powerhouse Jan. 16, 2019, according to the complaint. The complaint alleges proper safety precautions and the mill's own procedures were not followed.

Graphic Packaging could not immediately be reached for comment Friday.
