CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) — University of Northern Iowa officials have released the name of an employee killed this week in a steam pipe leak.
61-year-old Kevin Bley, a 10-year-old steamfitter at the university, died Monday morning after the incident in a dining hall.
Aaron Clingingsmith, interim director of university relations, says Bley was injured as he was testing the steam distribution service, which heats the water for the dining service. Bley says the system was being brought back online, when the accident happened.
The dining hall had been closed since Sept. 4 because of a prior steam leak.
No one else was injured.
