Sulphuric acid claims life of factory worker

A man has died in a tragic accident at work after drowning in a vat of sulphuric acid, various US news agencies have revealed.

The horrific industrial accident occurred at a circuit board factory in Redwood City, California, and health and safety experts are now at the scene to try and establish exactly what happened.

Initial signs indicate that the 18-year-old worker became overwhelmed by chemical fumes and tumbled into the deadly acid, drowning before help could arrive.

It is thought that the youngster's body was only discovered when his father became concerned that the teenager hadn't returned from his shift at the factory and so went to look for him. Coming across the scene of the terrible work accident, the man tried to revive his son but it was too late.

An autopsy is currently being carried out to confirm the cause of death and it is yet unclear whether an accident at work compensation claim is likely to be made by the teenager's family.
