Utility workers killed at power plant

MANAGUA, NICARAGUA - Two workers were electrocuted and died at a power plant in Nicaragua while trying to restore service to a section of the capital, a utility official said.

The workers died at Planta Managua, located in the northern section of the capital, National Electricity Transmission Company, or Enatrel, CEO Salvador Mansell said.

The dead workers were identified as Oscar Felipe Ordonez Flores, a 42-year-old employee of state-owned Enatrel, and Roger Antonio Duarte, who worked for private electricity distributor Disnorte-Dissur.

The "sad accident" happened when the workers moved one of the bars on an electrical panel that was live during a difficult and complicated repair at Planta Managua, Mansell said.

Power has been restored in Managua, where outages had been reported in several districts.
