Substation death not workplace-related

MONTAGUE, PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND - The death of a man at an electrical substation in eastern Prince Edward Island was not a workplace accident, says Maritime Electric.

An investigation is underway into the sudden death of a man working at a Maritime Electric substation in Montague. Spokeswoman Kim Griffin told CBC News the subcontractor was working at the Victoria Cross substation.

"The death was not associated with electrical work," said Griffin.

"From what we understand it was a health-related issue and the man was not electrocuted."

Griffin said the man was working on one of the buildings on the substation property, not with electrical equipment.
