Two Ohio Workers Killed By Crane


UPDATED: Sunday May 5, 2013 7:33 PM

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.
