Investigation Summary

Investigation Nr: 200611309
Event: 10/26/2001
Electric Shock - Direct Contact With Overhead Line

A worker for a tree trimming company, in order to prune some dead limbs, climbed a tree and tied himself off. As he worked, his chain saw apparently contacted a single-phase conductor energized at 7,160 volts AC, but without drawing an arc. Apparently, he continued to work, and then he backed into the 7,160-volt conductor, with the line contacting him across the back of his shoulders. The exit wounds appeared to be along the insides of his knees, indicating that he might have been bracing himself at the time of contact. He was electrocuted.
