FirstEnergy officials told 5 News that safety measures were in place to prevent direct contact with the duct and it is not clear at this time how the employee came to fall.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration was called to the station around 8:30 a.m. Wednesday to investigate the accident.

I agree. Keep politics out of someone's death. Unfortunately the left jump to conclusions and start blaming the company each time. That is putting liberal agendas before finding out about real facts of someone's death. Hypocrites.

Oh the generation of blame, blame, blame but take NO responsibility for one's own actions. The language itself PROVES the greed, selfishness and childish behaviors of this sad, pathetic generation of useless folks who have 'nothing' to show for their lives. This indeed is the most dissapointing generation EVER!

I've noticed that most of the recent deaths on the job lately at various businesses are due to that workers' clumsiness and deadly mistakes. There's not a whole lot a company can do other than stress daily, safety and focus on the job. You can't control others mistakes while working. But the left will attempt to blame the company rather than the personal responsiblity of the workers.
