Worker injured in electrical explosion

A Minntac worker was badly injured in an electrical accident inside an iron ore plant in Mountain Iron, Minnesota, according to an article released on October 16.

The accident occurred just before 8 a.m. at U.S. Steel’s Minntac Taconite when a piece of electrical equipment exploded. A worker identified as Jon Malek sustained serious injuries.

Malek was rushed to a hospital and reported to be in stable condition. The plant operation was temporarily stopped due to power outage. The explosion incident will be investigated by the company with the help of regulatory authorities, a spokeswoman of U.S. Steel said.

Malek has been working in the company for almost 17 years.
