Nuclear Plant Guard Shot Himself in the Leg, But “no threat to the nuclear reactor” Says Paper

Foster’s Daily Democrat reports:

“Seabrook Station security staff and police immediately determined the accidental discharge posed no threat to the nuclear reactor or operation of the plant. No one else was injured.

“‘This occurred in the armory, which is nowhere near any of the actual operations,’ said Alan Griffith, spokesman for Seabrook Station. ‘It was really an unfortunate accident.'”

But the good news is that …

“‘As with any situation like this … we’ll be conducting what’s called a root cause analysis to ensure we have a full understanding of what happened,’ Griffith said.”
