CANTON, Ohio (AP) — 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 (http://bit.ly/YxMK8i ) 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.
