Oil Services Company Indicted for Manslaughter

An Ohio grand jury has indicted a southwest Ohio company, United Oil Recovery Services Inc. and its environmental health and safety manager, with involuntary manslaughter, reckless homicide, criminal endangering and environmental violations in the 2008 death of a treatment plant worker who authorities say was overcome by toxic gas. The company president and plant manager and three officials are also charged with endangering worker safety, report say..

Reports say sodium hydrosulfide, used to speed up a wastewater treatment process at the company's Middletown plant, caused a chemical reaction, killing 45-year-old Thomas Rogers, who was working in the plant at the time of the toxic gas release.
