PEARL HARBOR (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The families of two workers killed in a Pearl Harbor accident are suing over their deaths.

Just Saragosa and Joeffrey Andrada were with a group of fellow employees on a floating barge when a 10-ton buoy crashed down on them. 

Saragosa and Andrada were killed and two others were injured in the accident.

The families' attorneys say the accident was avoidable and the companies, Healy Tibbits and Truston Technologies are at fault.

In a related lawsuit, Truston has demanded Healy Tibbits accept all liability. Truston said attorneys were demanding 23 million dollars in damages.
