Considering the nature of the work being done, the International Chimney Corporation should be sued heavily for the wrongful death of an employee. Working in those weather conditions hamper an already dangerous situaton. Where was OSHA? Inside keeping warm?

It's my understanding that the man was crushed under the box of a dumptruck. He was trying to free up the box that was stuck in the dump position. The control was still in the down position when he went under the box. Very sad for his family.

Terribly sad. BUT... What that have happened to any of you? Or me? How cautious are we? How cautious WAS he? How many times have any of us avoided a dangerous circumstance? Checked a switch, a wire, a floor board, anything. It is sad...

Some DETAILS of the accident in the news would be nice. Why the coverup? The accidents at this power plant have been off the charts.

OSHA only shows up when someone gets killed. There have been many serious accident at NRG Dunkirk and nothing is ever done about it. This old hell hole is a death trap.

Nice ? for whom? The family, I don't think they want to rehash this, What cover up? Because every gory detail isn't printed its a cover up? Get real, ask any NRG employee, they are aware of the facts even though it was a sub contractor who died. Leave it be.

Nobody is saying it is "nice". The accident rate at this NRG plant is very high. Nothing ever seems to be done to correct it. Capeche?

This has been going on for decades. It's the culture of the place. See the posts above. Death seems to be just part of the job and shoulders shrug when it happens. God bless this poor man and his family. Sorry if I offended anyone.
