GROTON, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut submarine maker Electric Boat has been fined by federal officials after an employee fell more than 20 feet. The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration recently fined Electric Boat $10,000 for a May accident that seriously injured Tanessa Pabon. The 22-year-old had been pressure-washing the USS John Warner when she fell through an access hole to the submarine's lower level. She was hospitalized with head, neck and spine injuries and remains on medical leave.
