NEW ORLEANS - The body of one of the workers that died from his burns on the platform will be returned to the Philippines Tuesday,  according to the Philippines ambassador.

Avelino Tajonera, 49, died Friday in Baton Rouge, just after his family arrived from Manila.

The families of the three other men who remain hospitalized are also in Baton Rouge.

The November 16 explosion and fire killed Ellroy Corporal, 42, and the search for Jerome Malagapo, 28, was called off.

Corporal's body will also be returned to the Philippines Tuesday.
