Ohio Bureau of Workers Compensation files against city of Middleton
The Ohio Bureau of Workers Compensation this week issued multiple citations against the city of Middletown following the death of a city worker earlier this year.
The worker’s death was caused by inhalation of nitrogen fumes during a routine sewer line inspection. The Ohio Bureau of Workers Compensation alleges that the leakage was due to poor maintenance by the city and could have been avoided.
The 31-year-old worker opened a manhole on the 2500 block of Yankee Road on May 7 earlier this year when he inhaled the fumes. Three firefighters also inhaled the fumes and became ill while attempting to rescue the worker.
