Nuclear plant accident results in casualties

Seven firefighter units and four medical emergency vehicles were deployed to Ascó on Wednesday evening at around 7 pm local time. Emergency crews secured the facility and evacuated the casualties.
The fire-fighting system at the plant “suffered a CO2 leak that has affected four people,” Catalan authorities said.
