We Energies worker dies from steam burns

MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN - A We Energies employee who suffered extensive burns from steam escaping from a pipe last month has died from his injuries.

The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office released a report on the death of 58-year-old William Kaiserling, a steam services mechanic who was a 30-year employee of the utility.

The report said he was working to release water during heavy rains June 19 in downtown Milwaukee when the accident happened, leaving him with extensive burns and inhalation of heat from the steam.

The report said Kaiserling underwent surgery and later suffered cardiac arrest.

We Energies spokeswoman Irrisol Arce (EE-ree-sol AR-say) said the accident remains under investigation by the utility and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
