Condition of injured EAC employees ‘serious but stable’

The condition of the two Electricity Authority (EAC) employees who were seriously injured on May 20 by a blast and fire at a sub-station of the utility in Latsia remains serious, EAC spokesperson Christina Papadopoulou said on Tuesday.

Papadopoulou told the Cyprus News Agency that the two men’s condition was serious but stable.

The two men, aged 48 and 40, were injured when an explosion occurred at the sub-station as they were carrying out scheduled maintenance. The clothes of two employees had caught fire after the blast.

Due to the severity of their injuries, they were transferred abroad for treatment. The 48-year-old was taken to Athens for treatment at a hospital specialising in burns, while the 40-year-old was taken to a healthcare facility in Leipzig.

No information was given yet as to what caused the blast.

Papadopoulou said the two investigations into the accident continue.  One is being carried out by the EAC, the other by the labour ministry’s labour inspection office.
