A SEPTA worker sustained fatal injuries after being struck by a train on the Broad Street Line. On Monday evening, around 5:44 pm, the accident occurred in the Tioga section of Philadelphia. The worker who was employed with SEPTA for over 20 years was working with two other employees on the northbound tracks when he took a fall. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) will be investigating the work accident.
Taking a fall while working is one of the most common ways workers in various industries become injured or lose their lives. Sometimes, the employees may be working in an environment that does not contain enough or appropriate safeguards to protect them from workplace hazards. Injuries associated with a fall at a work site may include head and brain trauma, spinal injuries, and other serious medical issues.
