Two Ohio Workers Killed By Crane
Authorities in northeast Ohio say federal workplace safety inspectors will investigate an accident that killed two workers.
The two men were killed Saturday while working for an excavating contractor at a steel plant site in Perry Township, near Canton. The Canton Repository reports that they were dead at the scene after a crane boom fell on them Saturday afternoon.
They were doing work at the Timken Co.'s Faircrest Steel Plant. Timken says construction work was suspended, and the company suspended its steel-making operations at the plant until Monday.
The company says the accident has been reported to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
