Investigation Summary

Investigation Nr: 200920338
Event: 09/11/2000
Electric Shock - Contact With Overhead Line

A supervisory employee was installing an overhead fiber-optic communications cable from the platform of a truck-mounted, telescoping-boom aerial lift. With the free end of the cable attached to the platform, he had elevated the platform to the level of the suspension strand. As he pulled the fiber-optic cable from a trailer-mounted reel on the ground through the branches of a tree to attach it to the suspension strand, either his body or the metal platform contacted one phase conductor of a 19.9-kilovolt overhead power line. The employee, who was pronounced dead at the scene, was electrocuted.
