Power knocked out at Oklahoma City hospital
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A piece of construction equipment accidentally knocked out power at the University of Oklahoma Medical Center in Oklahoma City.
Hospital spokesman Dennis Gimmel (GIM'-uhl) says a few patients had to be moved from the outpatient waiting area, but no widespread problems occurred Thursday afternoon. Gimmel says everything continued to operate normally.
Gimmel says a piece of construction equipment accidentally cut one on the main power lines to the hospital, triggering the facility's secondary power source.
As the power was going out, Gimmel says some hospital equipment overheated and produced smoke but no fire occurred.
