On Thursday afternoon at approximately 2:40 p.m., a fatal incident occurred
at an Olefins Plant in Baytown, TX. The contractor was employed by Group
and was working at an ExxonMobil construction project site. Emergency
crews were called out to help the man, but he was later pronounced dead.
ExxonMobil said the following in a statement that they released:
"We are greatly saddened by this and express our deepest sympathy
to his family and his co-workers. The name of the individual will not
be released until his family has been notified."
The accident is currently being investigated by the Harris County Sheriff's
Office. No other details have been released.
In April of 2013, workers at the plant threatened to go on
strike because of unsafe working conditions.
The hearts and prayers of everyone at Arnold & Itkin go out to those
affected by this fatal accident.
