Two work­ers were killed Mon­day af­ter­noon in an ac­ci­dent dur­ing con­struc­tion of New­found­land and Labrador Hy­dro’s trans­mis­sion line from Bay d’es­poir to the Avalon Penin­sula. The two work­ers were em­ployed by a com­pany do­ing con­tract work for Hy­dro. The ac­ci­dent hap­pened west of Come By Chance, but no de­tails about the in­ci­dent are known, Nal­cor En­ergy — NL Hy­dro’s par­ent com­pany — stated in a news re­lease. The two work­ers were not pub­licly iden­ti­fied. “All con­struc­tion on the trans­mis­sion line has been sus­pended ef­fec­tive im­me­di­ately,” Nal­cor stated. Two am­bu­lances and two po­lice ve­hi­cles were at the scene Mon­day af­ter­noon.
