LANL > Online efforts for worker hurt in TA-53 accident are still ongoing

By Mike Cote

The online fundraising efforts for the worker injured in the May 3 accident at Los Alamos National Laboratory has exceeded its goal.
As of this morning, the Julian and Deborah Trujillo Recovery Fund had raised $25,828, slightly more than the original goal of $25,000. The fundraiser will be open for 50 more days, according to the website youcaring.com.
Trujillo was suffering from injuries sustained in last month’s accident at TA-53. He is a member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and was working on a transformer at TA-53 when the electrical accident occurred.
According to the website, more than 400 people have contributed to the efforts, which are to help defray medical costs associated with the accident.
Trujillo was taken to University of New Mexico Hospital shortly after the accident to be treated for severe burns. His condition was listed as critical for more than two weeks following the accident.
Local 611’s business manager, Carl Condit, said he was pleased by the outpouring of effort from the community and the union to help the family.
“The union membership is always doing charity work,” he said. “It’s heartwarming to see everyone helping the Trujillo family through a very tough time.”
