Investigations Continue into Fatal Accident at Steel Mill

 Multiple investigations continue into an accident at a northwest Indiana steel mill that claimed the life of an ironworker and injured two others from Pangere Corporation this week. Reports say a falling metal plate at ArcelorMittal Indiana Harbor West in East Chicago early Wednesday claimed the life of 39-year-old Michael Samuelson of Valparaiso. The Lake County Coroner's office reported Samuelson suffered blunt force trauma and was pronounced dead at the scene. His death was ruled accidental. Two other contractors were taken to a local hospital where they were reportedly in stable condition as of Friday.
