The plant, at 22225 N.E. 210 Highway in Missouri City, is owned
and operated by Independence Power and Light.
Marty Barker, manager of production at the plant, says Reynolds
was preparing to repair equipment. He had to climb ladders
and go through a door to get to the repair location, and somehow
caught his foot and fell, injuring his leg.
Reynolds has been an employee of Independence Power and Light
for about five years.
Rescue crews from Excelsior Springs, Liberty and Kansas City
were called to help with the rescue.
Barker reports the only other accident reported at the plant in
more than ay ear was an employee who suffered a burn on the arm
from flying ash.
