A gantry crane moving a large generator collapsed. Poorly designed gantry or floor overloaded.

The plant was shutdown when the turbine stator fell. There is no nuclear material in this building.

I've seen photos. To answer someone's question, the rigging contractor was Bigge.

Ok, so the fact that it happened on Sunday morning is not "fishy"... it was during an outage.

This was an industrial accident, not a nuclear accident.

This appears to have been written by a sixth grader. Check your facts before you publish.
