OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Silhouettes representing 38 Oklahoma workers killed on the job over the past year are on display at the state Capitol as part of Workers Memorial Day.

Among the victims are a Claremore firefighter swept away by floodwaters last spring and an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper struck and killed on an interstate.
