Don't you hate it when one of your employees falls into a vat of acid?
It was a very New Jersey sounding industrial accident. But why do we at 15-Seconds Blog tell you about it? Because employees at Swepco, the company which owned the building with the flimsy roof and the tank of toxic stuff beneath it, refused to comment.
We can imagine why. Someone probably suggested that they are going to get sued and it was best to clam up. If so, they were half right. They almost certainly ARE going to get sued -- but nothing is gained by trying to make the accident look more mysterious than it was....
[Good case study. What do you think? Were they right? JD]
