    A wrongful death suit filed by the family of a New Hampshire brewery worker who was killed by an exploding beer keg three years ago has been settled for $1.2 million.

    According to Seacoastonline.com, about a third of the settlement money will go to the family's lawyers. The lawsuit was filed against the three companies that manufacture and distribute the keg that exploded in April of 2012, killing 26-year-old Benjamin Harris.

    The suit was settled out of court and approved by a U.S. District Court judge on July 15.
