Event: 10/05/2011
Employee Is Killed From Electric Shock

At approximately 11:25 a.m. on October 5, 2011, Employee #1, an employee of All Tree Services, was performing tree trimming duties while suspended by a safety belt in a tree approximately 15 ft high. A coworker on the ground handed Employee #1 a running STIHL gas powered telescoping pole saw. As soon as Employee #1 touched the saw, his body went limp and he fell backwards hanging from the tree. The Brenham Police and Fire Departments responded to the accident and transported Employee #1 to Scott & White Hospital-Brenham, where he was pronounced dead at 12:22 p.m. The cause of death was suspected to be electrocution due to touching overhead power lines.
