Mass. Workers Injured by Electrical ExplosionEMS World reports that two electricians working at the Mayo Clinic Medical Laboratories were injured by an electrical explosion last week. The article reported:
"One electrician, who suffered first- and second-degree burns to his face, was transported to Lawrence General Hospital. The other, who Andover Deputy Fire Chief James Dolan said suffered more severe burns to his face, neck and arms, was initially transported to Lawrence General Hospital but wound up being driven via a life-support ambulance to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. Dolan said his injuries were severe enough to warrant the use of a Med-Flight helicopter, but poor weather had grounded yesterday's flights."
The two electricians were reportedly working on a high-voltage panel at the time of the explosion.
