MANCHESTER, Ohio (AP) — The body of a second worker killed in a power plant collapse in southern Ohio has been located, his employer said Friday.

A spokesperson for Detroit-based demolition contractor Adamo Group said by email that the family and other loved ones of 47-year-old Jamie Fitzgerald have been notified. Patrick Crowley said authorities have also been informed that Adamo Group crews are working to recover the body of the Boyd County, Kentucky, man.

The body of Doug Gray, 42, of Greenup County, Kentucky, was recovered from rubble last month. Three other workers were injured Dec. 9, while the rest escaped. The cause of the collapse at the Killen Generating Station site in Adams County, Ohio, remains under investigation.

The collapse came as the coal-fired generation plant, some 75 miles east of Cincinnati, was set to be demolished. It closed in May 2018.
