-Burns from steam and calistic soda, suffered Thuesday night took the life of an Apple Valley turkey ranch employe yesterday.
---Sherman Ebert, 48, died at St. Mary's Hospital at 2:40 a.m., Dep. Coroner E. J. Coger said. He had second and third degree burns over 50 per cent of his body when the lid blew off a huge pressure cooker.
---He was one of six workers burned when the steel lid of the cooker blew off. The lid hit the cement ceiling, knocking a 10-inch long, one inch deep piece from the cement, Coger said.
---All the men were covered with the live steam in a matter of seconds. Four were seriously burned and are being treated at the hospital. They are Rene Vellez, 30, Victorville, Jack Goodman, 49, Luis Nieto, 36, Victorville, and Joe Castillo, 22, San Bernardino, whose brother, Elberto, required only first aid.
---The accident happened near the end of the last day's cooking for the season; the cooker would not have been used again until Oct. 1.
---Ebert is survived by his wife and four children. Funeral arrangements are pending at O'Donnell's Mortuary in Victorville.
