Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro has confirmed that two workers are dead after an accident yesterday afternoon during construction of the transmission line, just west of Come by Chance.
The victims were employees of a contracting company that had been working alongside Hydro at the site.
All construction on the transmission line has been suspended. Hydro says they are working closely with the contractor.
