According to the Santa Fe New Mexican, the accident was the result of radioactive particles that were released into the air inside the lab's plutonium facility.

This was the second time in four weeks that lab workers were exposed to radioactive particles. The same crew was involved in both incidents.

The clothes of all three workers were contaminated, as well as the skin on one of the workers' chest. The crew has been successfully decontaminated.
