Worker Recovers from Fish Farm Accident

New for June 18 09 4:44pm

A 60-year-old man taken to hospital earlier this week after falling into a tub of disinfectant chemicals at a fish farm is doing just fine. The accident happened Tuesday afternoon at Cooke Aquaculture in St. George.

Fire officials say the chemical is called Foam Force and is used to clean the plant. A spokesperson for the plant tells CHSJ News the man was checked over and released from hospital. She says the company is looking at ways to prevent a similar accident from happening again. WorkSafeNB is also investigating.
