Vandenberg workers transferred to burn hospital

Two workers who were seriously hurt at Vandenberg Air Force Base over the weekend were moved to another hospital today.

The United Launch Alliance said two employees were transferred to a Los Angeles hospital that specializes in treating burn victims.

They were working on a Delta IV rocket being prepared for an August launch when an arc flash occurred.

An arc flash happens when an electric current flashes from one live conductor to another.
