Hopeful-  The Mitchell County Coroner Friday officially ruled two Haitian workers killed Wednesday in a farm accident were electrocuted.  OSHA and the U.S. Department of Labor's investigation could take up to six months.

Two Haitian men were killed and three men and a woman were injured as they stacked corn on a platform called a mule train. That piece of equipment struck a 46 kilovolt Georgia Power transmission line Wednesday afternoon. We only know the names of three of the workers.

Stephen St.Fleur, Lumeme St.Fleur, and Dieufete Racius were flown to the Joseph M. Still Burn Center at Doctor's Hospital in Augusta where they are listed in good condition.
