Commentary

Based upon the scarce information in early media reports, there's no way of knowing exactly what happened in this accident. One may presume, however, either the person starting the generator did so in error, or the generator itself suffered some sort of inherent manufacturer's flaw. While manufacturing flaws rarely lead to accidents of this magnitude, it's not unheard of. That's why we should wast no time in further examining the details to eliminate the possibility the generator was faulty. If so, we stand a better chance of exposing the flaw, and, with hope, prevent further injury.
