On August 17th at Russia's largest hydro-electric facility, part of an overstrained hydro-turbine unit, weighing 1,500, tons snapped off its restraining bolts and sailed 45 feet into the air. The result was flooding, short circuits and wreckage that crippled the plant and doomed dozens of workers in seconds.

The Associated press reports that Russia's top industrial safety oversight official, in a 140 page report, stated that negligence was a major factor in a devastating accident at Russia's biggest hydroelectric power plant.
