RI Worker Killed in EB Accident Identified

The Day reports that North Kingstown police have identified the Electric Boat employee who died in an accident at the company's Quonset Point manufacturing plant last week as Ritchie A. Morse, 31, of North Kingstown. Morse had worked at EB for 10 years. "According to police, Morse was moving a section of steel outside using a large transport device. The section then had to be moved back inside the main building where the submarine modules are assembled, due to the rain. Morse exited from the machinery and became trapped between it and a large door as it was closing, police said." He was transported to Kent County Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Police and OSHA are still investigating the incident.
