An investigation faults the village of Tarrytown for failing to protect two workers killed in a manhole accident.

The Journal News reports the state department of labor issued Tarrytown two notices of violation.

Investigators say the town failed to implement safety policies that could have prevented the asphyxiation deaths of Anthony Ruggiero and firefighter John Kelly.

Ruggiero passed out while trying to clear a sewer blockage in September.

Kelly died trying to save him.
