    Workers feared for their lives - By Connie Cartmell, Marietta Times, OH
    Chris Hrinko, 45, jumped from the roof he was inspecting at American Electric Power Co. after he heard a tremendous blast that seemed to come from inside the building.

    “He told me that he thought that he was in immediate danger,” Stacy Hrinko, his wife, said. “All of the exits off the roof were unsafe, he said, so he jumped, maybe about 20 feet, then ran to a nearby woods.”
