A workplace accident that seriously injured two Wichita men is under investigation.
Both men suffered from respiratory burns and other burns to the face and hands. Employees of Creek Electric were working on an electrical panel at Horizon Milling when it is believed that something caused the panel to arc and burned two of them. Both men are in serious condition.
