BARTOW COUNTY, GA. – June 7, 2018 (patch.com) According to an online article by patch.com, two contractors performing work for Georgia Power were hospitalized June 6 after an accident at a Bartow County, Georgia, plant.*

The accident occurred late in the evening on June 6 at the Plant Bowen facility located at 317 Covered Bridge Road SW in Euharlee, Georgia. A spokesperson for Georgia Power said the two men were contractors employed by the company Fluor and were working between units one and two at the plant when they sustained injuries in an accident.

Details about the cause and nature of the accident have not been released, but Fluor and Georgia Power are cooperating with local authorities in their investigation. The two workers have not been identified at this time, “out of respect for the privacy of the employees,” according to Fluor.
