Abstract: Some employees on a construction site were pouring concrete into wall forms. The concrete truck was backed up to the hopper of a concrete pumper truck. The concrete truck driver was standing on the ground, operating the controls at the rear of the truck. The concrete pumper truck operator, who was standing up on the back of the pumper truck, was moving the concrete pumper's boom into position. The boom contacted an 11.4-kilovolt overhead power line, and the concrete truck driver was electrocuted.
