Worker Killed in Industrial Accident at Electric Boat
A worker was killed in an accident at the Electric Boat Corporation manufacturing plant in North Kingston, Rhode Island.
The 31-year-old worker, whose name has not been released, was using a transport device to move a section of steel outside when it began to rain and the steel had to be transported back inside, according to North Kingstown police.
The worker, who worked at the Electric Boat Corporation for 10 years, became trapped between the machinery and a large door that was being closed.
The worker was taken to Kent County Hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later.
