Right now, no further information can be confirmed. That isn't unusual, considering how little time has passed since the incident. A lot of times, people will wait for OSHA to come save the day. Unfortunately, OSHA doesn't actually investigate workplace deaths involving government employees. If that true here, as well, then who exactly is working to get the victim's loved ones that answers they deserve?
