KITTERY, Maine — Officials at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard are investigating after an employee received a minor electrical shock while working late Monday night.

Danna Eddy, deputy public affairs officer at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, said paramedics from the shipyard fire department responded around 9:30 p.m. to the structural shop, building 92, for a reported medical emergency involving a male who suffered a shock from welding equipment.

The victim, who was not identified, was taken to a local medical facility by ambulance as a precautionary measure, said Eddy.

The employee has since been released from the hospital and is expected to report to work today, she said.

Eddy said an investigation into the event is ongoing.
