A Tesla employee at the company's Fremont factory died on Wednesday while working on its production line.
The employee collapsed while working on the factory's powertrain production line, Cal/OSHA told KTVU. Tesla notified the agency of the death, and Cal/OSHA is now investigating to determine whether or not it is related to work and if it should conduct an inspection of the factory.
Crew from the Fremont Fire Department responded to an emergency at the factory early Wednesday. The first firefighter to arrive on the scene said there there was no machinery involved, FFD spokesperson Aisha Knowles told the East Bay Times. The employee was pronounced dead at the scene.
